BBL is a non-profit networking organisation established in April 2011. Our key objectives are to promote and improve diversity within the legal profession and to encourage a greater degree of integration and participation by established black lawyers within the legal community.

We host a number of events throughout the year, often collaborating with tertiary education centres or law firms/chambers, to facilitate networking between students and legal professionals at various stages of their careers. We also collaborate with key stakeholders such as The Law Society, Birmingham Law Society and The SRA in order to create opportunities for our members and engage in discussions aimed at bringing about tangible change within the profession.

As a result of our work, many of our student members have gone onto secure mentorships, work experience, mini pupillages and pupillages, training contracts, paralegal roles and other employment opportunities. Our junior lawyers have honed their networking skills which is vital to their development and career progression, and our more established lawyers have expanded their support networks and pool of professional contacts.
