Equality & Diversity
Kings Chambers is committed to the fair and equal treatment of all its members, pupils and staff alike. As part of that commitment we strive to promote equal opportunities throughout our chambers and to ensure our operations and practices are free from direct and indirect discrimination or harassment on the grounds of age, disability, gender (including gender re-assignment), marriage and civil partnership status, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief and sexual orientation.
This tenet extends to our recruitment practices, the treatment of members, pupils and staff in chambers, the working relationships between members, pupils and staff in chambers and the service we provide to our clients.

Equality & Diversity Monitoring
Kings Chambers fully complies with the obligations to monitor and publish Equality & Diversity Data as stipulated by Rule rC110 of the Bar Standards Board Handbook.
All members, pupils and staff have been given the opportunity to provide their Diversity Data via an online survey between 9 April 2019 and 30 April 2019. As this is an entirely voluntary process individuals were free to provide all, some or none of their Diversity Data.
Approximately 60% of those eligible to submit their Diversity Data chose to do so and a copy of the summarised, statistical breakdown can be found here.
Enquiries regarding the Diversity Data or our approach to equality and diversity should be made to the Chambers Compliance Officer in the first instance via firstname.lastname@example.org
