In accordance with the Bar Standards Boards equality rules, members and staff are given the opportunity to provide diversity data in order for Chambers to publish an anonymous summary of such data.
Our diversity data can be found here, and we publish an updated summary of the data every 3 years.
The contribution of a number of our barristers has been recognised at award events for the legal profession in relation to commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion.
