Welcome to the
Scottish Ethnic Minorities Lawyers Association
SEMLA's mission is to facilitate a diverse and inclusive legal profession in Scotland. SEMLA aims to provide support and create career opportunities for ethnic minority lawyers and law students in Scotland.
Since its launch in 2017, SEMLA has pursued its mission by working with the Law Society of Scotland, Faculty of Advocates and some of the largest law firms and in-house legal teams in Scotland and the United Kingdom, all with the aim of increasing access into and progression within the legal profession for all talented lawyers and law students - regardless of background.
SEMLA's committee welcomes the support of law firms and organisations. Please get in touch via the "Contact" page if you would like to discuss SEMLA's work.
