Equality and diversity

We are committed to equal opportunities in all aspects of our work.

We support and promote equal opportunity and treatment for all, regardless of sex, marital status, race, religious belief, nationality, ethnic or national origins, disability, age or sexual orientation. We are also committed to non-discrimination when accepting work, carrying out that work and in all dealings with clients, colleagues, staff, and others.

In accordance with disability discrimination legislation, we will fully consider any request for a reasonable adjustment.

Mentoring scheme for under-represented groups at the Bar

We are one of the founder member sets of a mentoring scheme for under-represented groups at the Bar. The initiative was launched in September 2021 in partnership with 4 other chambers and the support of the Planning and Environment Bar Association.

Mini-pupillage programme

We believe it is important to encourage equality and diversity at the Bar.

Our mini-pupillage programme is open to anyone interested in a career at the Bar.  We hope by offering these opportunities to widen the pool of people who gain an insight into life at the bar.

Diversity surveys

In August 2020, our Diversity Data Officer conducted a survey of diversity among our barristers and staff. You can read a summary of the anonymised responses.

An earlier survey of diversity among our barristers and staff took place 3 years before. See an anonymised summary of the data collected in October 2017.
