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?"  

"With the publication of Black Letter Law there is one less excuse for those who report on, or lead, the profession to fail to include in their dealings senior lawyers whose background is more representative."
Eduardo Reyes, Commissioning and Features Editor of the Law Society Gazette
