Yes of course. Firms are much more diverse in their recruitment now and they care about it more.
I certainly found the law firm environment to be quite a different world when I first started. But the more you immerse yourself and by extension, the less you see yourself as a barrier, the easier it’ll be. I haven’t seen attitudes like that at my firm at all, perhaps the occasional comment in jest on a vacation scheme, but it is very rare. More importantly, it’s about whether you display the right attitudes and show potential.
