Equal Opportunities Diversity

Kings Chambers is an Equal Opportunities employer and seeks to apply the same principles in relation to the selection of individuals for interviews for staff positions and for offers of pupillage or tenancy.

Chambers is committed to ensuring within the framework of the law that Chambers' workplaces are free from unlawful or unfair discrimination on the grounds of colour, race, nationality, ethnic or national origin, sex, sexual orientation, religion, gender re-assignment, part time status, marital status or disability.

Chambers aims to ensure that Chambers' staff, members and pupils achieve their full potential and that all employment decisions are taken without reference to irrelevant or discriminatory criteria.

Candidates who suffer from a disability are invited to indicate if they have any special requirements that they may have or difficulties they may face in attending an interview. We shall make all reasonable adjustments to ensure that the minimum discomfort or inconvenience is caused to you by any of our requirements or the features of our premises.  

Diversity

Kings Chambers adhere to the requirements of the Equality Code For The Bar. This is a direct requirement of the Code of Conduct of the Bar of England and Wales.

Members, staff and pupils do not discriminate directly or indirectly against or victimise anyone on the grounds of their sex, race, colour, ethnic origin, nationality, citizenship, sexual orientation, marital status, disability, religion, age or political persuasion.
