Chambers is committed to equal opportunities in all aspects of its work.

All barristers are committed to observe the Bar Council Code of Conduct and Code for Equality in relation to non-discrimination in the acceptance of work, the carrying out of that work and all dealings with clients, colleagues, staff and others. All staff are committed to comply with this policy. In addition Chambers operates its own Equality and Diversity Policy.

It is our policy to treat everyone equally and fairly regardless of their racial group, colour, ethnic or national origin, nationality, citizenship, gender, sexual orientation, marital status, disability, religion or political persuasion. To read our policy Statement on equality please follow this link.

The Bar Standards Board (BSB) introduced regulation which requires Chambers to gather and publish the diversity data of Chambers’ workforce. The survey was conducted during 2017 in accordance with the questionnaire devised by the BSB (based on the model proposed by the Legal Services Board). The survey was entirely voluntary and it was conducted in such a way to guarantee the anonymity of those who contributed.
