Corporate and Social Responsibility statement
Brick Court Chambers is committed to acting in a socially responsible manner.
Access to the legal profession
We are committed to promoting access to the legal profession and to the bar. As well as offering mini-pupillages, Brick Court Chambers hosts an annual Student Open Day to enable students to learn more about life at the bar. We also regularly participate in the Bar Council’s Social Mobility Foundation Bar Placement week and the Access Aspiration Scheme, both of which seek to encourage diversity and social mobility in the profession.
Pro bono work
Members of Brick Court Chambers regularly undertake pro bono work with organisations including Amnesty International, Liberty, Redress, Reprieve, the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), the Human Dignity Trust, the Death Penalty Project, the AIRE Centre, JUSTICE, the International Commission of Jurists, the European Human Rights Advocacy Centre, A4ID, the Bar Pro Bono Unit and the Free Representation Unit. Members of Chambers have recently represented a death row client in Trinidad and Tobago and the displaced people of the Chagos Islands.
Charitable work and contributions
Brick Court Chambers makes regular donations to the British and Irish Legal Information Institute (BAILII), an online database which provides all court users with free access to British and Irish legislation and case law. Members of Chambers also take part in the annual London Legal Walk to support legal advice charities. At our recent “Africa: Expanding Legal Horizons” Conference, we invited donations to the International Senior Lawyers Project (ISLP) and Protimos in lieu of a registration fee. In addition, Members of Chambers are individually involved in supporting a wide range of charitable causes, including acting as trustees.
Brick Court Chambers seeks to minimise its environmental impact wherever possible. There is a comprehensive recycling policy in place for paper, cardboard, glass, plastics, batteries and toner cartridges. All white goods and computer hardware are recycled to WEEE standards.
