One-quarter of LGBTQ+ lawyers in England and Wales have experienced homophobia, biphobia, or transphobia in the workplace, a new survey from the Law Society shows as the legal professions prepare to celebrate Pride Month.

The research found a majority of lawyers who experienced discrimination at work did not report the incidents, either feeling the incidents were not serious enough to make a formal complaint about or that they lacked confidence a complaint would be resolved effectively.
