‘The Fairness Project’: doing what we can, where we are

This paper explores the early findings from the Fairness Project, which is a collaborative research project across three Universities in Great Britain empowering students to maximise their employability through understanding and responding to inequality and unfair diversity barriers in the legal profession and inspiring them to create a fairer legal profession for the future.

The project has implications for the way we teach law students, particularly when the students go on to study on clinic modules where their own biases are challenged when they encounter clients with real world problems from very diverse backgrounds.
