Ten Old Square is committed to Equality and Diversity. It is crucial to our standing as a leading Chancery set of chambers that we excel in this, as in the rest of our business.
The obligation not to discriminate against clients, our members, pupils or our staff on grounds of gender, race, sexual orientation, age, disability and religion or belief is a fundamental legal and regulatory obligation imposed on us by legislation and by the Bar’s Code of Conduct.
We make sure that we are behaving in a fair and non-discriminatory way at all times and we recruit and retain the very best staff, pupils, and barristers, based on merit, from the widest possible pool of talent. We are signed up to the Chambers UK Diversity and Inclusion Charter, a global initiative to promote a diverse and inclusive legal profession. Our executive leader and charter champion is our Senior Clerk, Keith Plowman.
In the interests of transparency we publish Ten Old Square’s E&D Policies here. These include:
We also publish our Workforce Diversity Data survey online. Please click here to see the results of the 2018 survey.
If you have any questions relating to equality and diversity please contact our Senior Clerk, Keith Plowman, in the first instance.
