Lawyers of the Month

Angela Jackman was our Lawyer of the Month for April. She is a partner at the London office of Maxwell Gillott and was the winner of the Outstanding Achievement award at the Legal Aid Lawyer of the Year Silver Jubilee awards in 2009.

The purpose of Lawyer of the Month is to showcase the breadth of talent of ethnic minority lawyers despite their under-representation at the top and wherever there is real lucrative work. There is so much to be done, and that can be done, and the Diversity League Table 2006 graphically demonstrates this in the statistics of the Top 100 law firms. However, despite that, the wealth of talent of black minority ethnic lawyers is amazing and we at BLD want to celebrate it in our Lawyer of the Month features.

"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."
