Chiswick Lawyer Marks Black History Month
Sarah Austin chairs high-profile Law Society event
Sarah Austin of Austins Solicitors on Chiswick High Road said “It was an honour to chair this high profile Law Society event, as it both celebrates and encourages young talent.”
Sarah also represents women solicitors on the Law Society Council and is one of only two black British-born members of the Council.
The Inspiration Evening , which is the cornerstone of the Law Society's Black History month celebration "brings together the aspiring with the inspirational", she said.
This year's speakers included a judge, a managing partner, a city firm founder and a charity advisor. After the speeches the delegates networked over traditional Caribbean fare.
Sarah was invited to chair this pivotal event as an enthusiastic supporter of the legal profession and one of only two black British born Council members. She also serves on the Equality and Diversity committee of the Law Society and the Legal Affairs and Policy Board.
