We are committed to promoting equality and diversity and recognise the under-representation of various minority groups both in chambers and at the wider commercial bar.
We wish to recruit the best people from the widest possible group of talent and we are involved in a number of programmes that seek to widen the pool of applicants at the commercial bar, including the Mentoring Scheme for Underrepresented Groups, Combar Scholarship Scheme, Pathways to Law, the Sutton Trust and the recently established Women at the Commercial Bar initiative (see article in The Times about this here). You can find out more about our approach to Equality and Diversity here.
We have robust policies and procedures in place to ensure that there is no discrimination against clients, members, pupils, prospective pupils, or staff on grounds of gender, race, sexual orientation, age, disability, religion, or any other protected characteristic. Further information on our policies can be found here.
