Bar Standards Board Equality & Diversity Survey
Brick Court Chambers has conducted a survey in accordance with the Bar Standards Board Code of Conduct, in order to collect and publish equality and diversity data. BSB rules aim to provide transparency in recruitment and to encourage diversity in the profession.
The survey was conducted anonymously and participation was voluntary, as required by the BSB rules. The data summarised below is based on the responses actually received, and may not reflect the position that would have applied if all those eligible to participate had chosen to do so.
Total numbers may differ from category to category because a response to each question was voluntary. Data is not published where its publication might reasonably lead to the identification of individuals without their consent.
