Chambers, its staff and members operate a policy that we do not discriminate directly or indirectly against, or victimise anyone, on the grounds of their race, colour, national or ethnic origins; nationality or citizenship; gender, marital status or sexual orientation; religion, political persuasion, age or disability. This policy is applied in deciding whether to accept briefs and instructions from clients and in the provision of services; in the selection, recruitment and treatment of staff, pupils and tenants. Where a professional or lay client, as a result of disability, cannot attend No. 37, we will visit the premises of the professional or lay client as appropriate.
Chambers, its staff and members do not act on any instructions or inducement to discriminate on the grounds of race, colour, national or ethnic origins, nationality or citizenship; gender, marital status or sexual orientation; religion, political persuasion, age or disability. Equally we do not instruct, induce, or attempt to induce anyone to discriminate on such grounds.
