Diversity statement

The Law Commission is an inclusive environment and we recognise that, in order for law reform to be both fair and representative, those undertaking the work should be from as diverse a range of backgrounds as possible. We therefore particularly welcome applications from individuals with backgrounds traditionally under-represented in the law.


The Law Commission represents both England and Wales, so we are keen to encourage applications from Welsh speakers so as to help us maintain and develop our relationship with the people of Wales.
