In this issue we wanted to talk about the idea of law firms setting targets for diversity in legal business management or leadership – but not as many people wanted to talk to us about it as we’d have liked. We thought that was a bit odd, and so – as I hope you’d expect – we’re going to talk about it anyway.

But, of course, that’s just for the lawyers – what about all the others who make up a client-facing team?
