Swedish law firm Vinge has embarked on a three-year corporate social responsibility project in the hope of inspiring more ethnic minorities to attend law school
The project, 'Working Life on Equal Terms - A Diversity Project', will focus on targeting schools in the suburban areas of Tensta, Farsta and Skarholmen in Malmo, with Vinge lawyers participating in teaching activities at the various Swedish upper secondary or high schools. The firm is also arranging visits to its offices, as well as summer traineeships, scholarships and study days focusing on different legal careers. "When 20 per cent of the population has a background outside Sweden, it's obvious that integration and diversity are important issues. Vinge hopes to contribute in a practical way which will also benefit the firm," said Michael Wigge, the firm's managing partner. "The members of the Swedish Bar Association, and in particular those who practise corporate and commercial law, are today almost exclusively Swedish. In an increasingly international world this cannot be right and Vinge wants to change this."
