The InterLaw Diversity Forum works to foster inclusion for diverse talent working in the legal sector, and to promote meritocracy in all sectors by working to 'level the playing field' in order to create environments where the best talent can succeed.

Since its founding in 2008 the InterLaw Diversity Forum has expanded its scope beyond LGBT+ to encompass all strands of diversity and inclusion, including Race & Ethnicity (BAME), Disability, Gender, and social mobility, with a particular focus on cultural change in the workplace and 'multiple identities'/intersectionality. 

Events and membership are free and open to anyone working in the legal sector, both lawyers (including private practice and in-house counsel), as well as non-lawyers and business services staff. 

The InterLaw Diversity Forum currently has more than 6,500 members and supporters from over 300 law firms and chambers, and over 500 corporates and financial institutions.

The InterLaw Diversity Forum is a volunteer-run organisation.
