“We are proud signatories to the Women in Law Pledge created by the Law Society, the Bar Council of England and Wales and the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives (CILEx). Our organisation is committed to the progress of gender equality, elimination of gender discrimination and pledges to make positive change for the legal profession”

Burley Law, June 2023

At Burley Law, we are delighted to announce our recent participation in two initiatives that align perfectly with our core values of collaboration and putting people first. We have become proud signatories of the Women in Law Pledge and IP Inclusive, both aiming to drive positive change within the legal profession.

About the Women in Law Pledge

The Women in Law Pledge, a collaborative effort by The Law Society, the Bar Council of England and Wales, and the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives (CILEx), holds immense importance in our pursuit of gender equality and the eradication of gender discrimination. We firmly believe that diversity and inclusivity are not just buzzwords but cornerstones for a thriving and dynamic legal industry.

Why have we signed up?

By signing the Women in Law Pledge, Burley Law unequivocally commits to fostering an environment where every individual, regardless of their gender, can flourish and achieve their full potential. We understand that achieving true gender equality requires concerted efforts and continuous improvement. Through this, we pledge to support and empower women within our organisation and the wider legal community.

What are we committing to do?

Our commitment to gender equality extends beyond mere words. We are dedicated to implementing concrete actions that drive progress and create lasting change. At Burley Law, we understand the importance of providing equal opportunities for professional growth, mentorship, and leadership roles to women within our firm. By championing their voices, recognising their achievements, and promoting their success, we aim to create a level playing field for all.

About IP Inclusive

IP Inclusive is an initiative that focuses on inclusivity and diversity in the intellectual property (IP) professional community within the legal industry. As a forward-thinking law firm, we recognise that innovation and creativity thrive in environments that value and embrace diverse perspectives. By joining IP Inclusive, we commit to promoting an inclusive culture within the IP community and ensuring that underrepresented groups have equal opportunities to succeed in this industry.

Why is IP Inclusive important?

We firmly believe that collaboration and inclusivity breed success. By embracing diverse talents, perspectives, and experiences, we can better serve our clients, make more informed decisions, and foster a stronger and more vibrant legal profession.

What can you do?

We encourage other firms and individuals within the legal industry to join us in this transformative journey towards a more equal and inclusive future. Together, let us work towards dismantling barriers, promoting diversity, and creating a legal profession that truly reflects the society we serve.
