Edinburgh Law School has received the Athena SWAN Bronze award in recognition of its on-going work to promote, and address the challenges of, gender equality for all of its staff and students.

The School is working hard to undertake the transformative action needed to ensure that our working environment is one that treats men and women fairly and equally, and provide them with an enriching environment in which to work and flourish as individuals and as a community.

“We owe a huge debt of thanks to those who worked hard on preparing our submission, especially Lindsay Jack, Professor Jo Shaw, Rhona Feist, and the members of the School’s Athena SWAN committee.

“We are dedicated to now ensuring that the commitments made in our submission will be transformed into actions and results.”
