On the occasion of our 100th birthday, we are celebrating chambers’ past, present and future.
The primary focus of our “Centenary Challenge” is social mobility. Both the Sutton Trust and IntoUniversity – our primary charity partners for our Centenary Challenge – are committed to improving the representation of under-represented groups in both higher education and in the workplace. Their work – both directly with students, through their programmes and centres, and through campaigning and policy – is hugely important work for 21st century Britain, and it will be more vital than ever in 2021, as the young people of the United Kingdom deal with the ongoing impact and consequences of the coronavirus pandemic. Brick Court Chambers has committed to raising £100,000 each for the Sutton Trust and IntoUniversity, and is very proud to be supporting – and looks forward to working and engaging more directly with – two such important and inspiring charities.
Whilst our principal focus is deliberately wider than the legal profession, the need remains great within the legal sector too, and Brick Court is delighted to be raising money for the Access to Justice Foundation and Advocate (formerly the Bar Pro Bono Unit). Chambers has committed to raising £50,000 for these charities.
We are extremely proud to be working with, and for, four such excellent charities, and we look forward to engaging with our clients and colleagues to raise funds for them.
There you will find a list of all our supporters – members of chambers, staff, clients, friends, who have raised and are raising funds for our Centenary Challenge – along with an up-to-date picture of our progress to date in meeting our target.
