LGBT Lawyers in Law Firms – A Survey

Two of my colleagues Steven Williams and Dr Matthew Williams are conducting a study which aims:

to explore the rise and function of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender groups in private practice law firms in the UK. These groups are relatively new phenomena and as such it is important to understand their origins and impacts. By completing this survey you will be providing us with information to answer these questions. This research is supported by The Law Society. Future research will look at lawyers in LGBT networks outside of private practice law firms.

Any interested LGBT lawyers please help by completing the survey.

The research is relevant to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender solicitors, trainee solicitors and other lawyers working for law firms in the UK, whether or not their firm has a LGBT group.

The survey takes between 5 and 10 minutes completing the survey as accurately as possible.

The information you provide will only be accessible to members of the research team, and will be kept securely, in strict accordance with laws on data protection. It will not be used for any other purpose. An analysis of the information will form part of our report at the end of the research and will be published in academic journals. You are welcome to see a copy of these articles prior to publication.

Will my taking part be confidential?
No person will be named or be identifiable in any way in the report or articles based on the study.

What if I wish to withdraw?
Your participation is entirely voluntary and you can withdraw at any time you wish, without giving a reason.

The survey can be compelted here.
