College of Law chief Nigel Savage has thrown down the gauntlet. The college is demonstrating its commitment to diversity in the legal profession by handing over £1.25m to a scheme to attract non-private-school-educated students into the law and is asking the profession to do the same.

Diversity is supposedly on every major law firm’s agenda. So we’ll just await with interest whether any of them follow the College of Law’s lead.
