Equality & Diversity

Lamb Chambers is committed to equality and to fostering diversity in our profession. We will treat everyone equally and fairly irrespective of their age, background, disability, gender re-assignment, marital or civil partnership status, pregnancy or maternity status, race, religion or belief, sex, or sexual orientation.  

In accordance with the Code of Conduct that applies to all barristers we have conducted a survey and publish the outcome below. The figures stated below are accurate as at 8th October 2019. Approximately 48% of barristers and staff took part. The aim in collecting and publishing this data is to provide greater transparency, and to help us identify areas where we may need to improve. The survey was conducted anonymously and participation was voluntary. Data is not published where it might reasonably lead to the identification of individuals.
