Anti-Racist Statement

Anti-Racist Statement

Crown Chambers is a chambers driven by values and commitment to inclusion, equality and diversity.

Crown Chambers adopts a zero tolerance approach to any form of racism. We recognise that the provision of equal opportunities in the workplace is not only right as a matter of principle and consistent with our core values, but that it is also good management practice. We dedicate time and resources to proactively establish a work environment in which members can live and work free from prejudice and discrimination.

Crown Chambers accepts the recommendations of The Bar Council’s ‘Race at the Bar: A Snapshot Report’ and encourages all our barristers and staff to commit to essential action in order to make real change.

To this end, Crown Chambers is committed to:

    • Educating our members on how discrimination arises and the impact it has;
    • producing an anti-racist action plan, which will include a race equality audit, and comprehensive anti-racism training for all members and staff;
    • encouraging our members to attend anti-racism training;
    • setting targets to provide an effective way of measuring both our challenges and our results;
    • support our members to involve themselves in initiatives to improve diversity at the Bar;
    • taking positive action to encourage applications from under-represented groups to apply for pupillage at Chambers to best support equality of opportunity in our recruitment process.

Crown Chambers makes this statement to signal its intent to fight racism and discrimination in all its forms and will continue to review and develop our action plan by assessing and reflecting on its progress.
