Equality and Diversity
Chambers’ Diversity and Inclusion Officers are Liam Loughlin, Estelle Thornber and Gregory Wedge.
At Church Court Chambers we pride ourselves on having members of different backgrounds where all are treated equal and all work together to promote access to the profession. Our 2021 Diversity Data Survey results can be viewed here .
Chambers recognises that in our society, groups and individuals are discriminated against on the basis of the following characteristics: race, colour, ethnic or national origin, nationality, citizenship, sex, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, being pregnant or on maternity leave, being married or in a civil partnership, age, disability, religion or political persuasion. Chambers further recognises not only direct discrimination, but those practices which have discriminatory effects (indirect discrimination). Moreover, discrimination can be based upon perceived and actual characteristics. It is therefore important to educate each other on these issues to recognise their importance throughout our work.
We are committed to the promotion of Diversity, Equality and Inclusion.
