About Us

BLD, also known as the Black Lawyers Directory, was launched in 2006 and was the brainchild of Debo Nwauzu. BLD's aim is to make a real difference on diversity by changing lives and transforming businesses by taking positive actions - not just talking. We highlight areas where a lot is being done and areas that could do better. We also provide information and showcase the talent of black and ethnic minority members of the legal profession. Our aim is not to name and shame but to encourage, cajole and ask: "Why not?"  

"BLD is an excellent resource to use to find out about workshops and open days at law firms that will help you find that illusive training contract.  There is a great support network and mentor programme that really works.  The BLD is an invaluable organisation to improve diversity in the legal profession."
 
Christiana, LPC Graduate
