EQUALITY AND DIVERSITY
Atlantic Chambers is firmly committed to the active promotion of Equality and Diversity and Equal Opportunities. Atlantic Chambers recognises that such a commitment requires taking positive steps to identify and eliminate possible areas of discrimination so as to afford:
- Equality of access to all applicants for mini pupillage, tenancy and employment;
- Equality of treatment to all members, pupils and staff;
- Equality of service to professional clients covering both the planning of services and the decision whether to accept instructions or other advice.
Chambers understands that if Chambers (and more widely, the Bar) is to thrive, it needs to select the very best from the widest possible pool.
Chambers is firmly committed to equal opportunities and tackling discrimination. Chambers recognises that in society, groups and individuals are at risk of being oppressed and/or disadvantaged on the grounds of their race, colour, ethnic or national origin, nationality, citizenship, sex, gender reassignment, sexual orientation, marital or civil partnership status, disability, age, religion or belief or pregnancy and maternity.

In accordance with the Bar Standards Board’s rule, Atlantic Chambers has an appointed Diversity Data Officer who has carried out a survey of all staff, members of Chambers and pupils in order to gather diversity data.
An anonymised summary of the data collected is available here. Not all data can be published as, where there are fewer than 10 individuals falling into a particular category or with a particular characteristic, the data can only be published if all those within the category or with that characteristic agree.
The exercise is entirely voluntary, therefore some data is missing as not everyone completed a form or gave the required consent. In addition each question gave the option to select ‘prefer not to say’ therefore that is included where relevant.
