Claudine Adeyemi shortlisted for the Black Solicitors Network Rising Star award

Mishcon de Reya Real Estate Associate Claudine Adeyemi has been shortlisted for the BSN Rising Star (Private Practice) at the UK Diversity Legal Awards 2018. The awards were founded in 2009 by the Black Solicitors Network (BSN) to celebrate the work being done by individuals, teams and organisations to engender greater diversity in the legal profession.  The BSN Rising Star is awarded to an exceptional BSN lawyer at the beginning of his/her career who stands out both in terms of strong legal, business, and client skills as well as leadership qualities and potential. In addition to their behaviour at work, individuals must also provide evidence of leadership in the community.

Claudine has been recognised for her passion about diversity, particularly ethnicity and social mobility issues affecting young people. She sits on Mishcon de Reya's Diversity Committee, previously leading the sub group for ethnicity and social mobility. Claudine founded and runs The Student Development Co. C.I.C., a non-profit organisation which provides career related support to 16 to 24 year olds from less privileged backgrounds. It has already helped over 200 16-24 year olds make more informed decisions about their futures, working with various companies. Claudine has also launched a mobile app, Career Ear, which aims to improve accessibility to quality careers advice for young career-seekers from less privileged backgrounds.

The winners will be announced at the awards ceremony on 21st November 2018.
