Equality and Diversity

We operate the Bar Council’s Equality and Diversity Code in relation to members, staff and pupils.

The members of the pupillage committee have received training from the Bar Council in fair recruitment practices.

We welcome applicants regardless of age, sex, sexual orientation, pregnancy and maternity, gender reassignment, race, religion, marital status or disability.

Please let us know if you have a disability that may require us to make reasonable adjustment for the application or interview process.

No. 1 High Pavement is proud of our record in equality and diversity we nevertheless welcome applications from people of all backgrounds and encourage those who are traditionally unrepresented at the Bar.

All applicants should also download and complete an anonymous Equality and Diversity form for monitoring purposes.

It is not a mandatory requirement that this is completed, but it is helpful for chambers to collect such information to ensure that our recruitment procedures are fair. This should be submitted with the application form but note it will be separated off upon receipt and kept entirely separate from the application throughout the process.
