Chambers is delighted to announce that it has committed to host an intern on a shared basis with other contributing chambers, law firms and the judiciary as part of the Bar’s collective participation in the #10000BlackInterns Scheme. The 10,000 Black Interns Programme aims to transform the horizons and prospects of young Black people in the UK by offering paid work experience across a wide range of industries, as well as world-class training and development. More information and how to apply directly to the programme can be found here. The selection process will be overseen by the Bar Council in conjunction with Bridging the Bar and we look forward to being part of another valuable scheme designed to create a more diverse Bar.
This is one of a number of initiatives that Chambers and members of chambers participate in to promote equality of opportunity and encourage underrepresented groups to pursue a career at the Bar. For more information on some of the initiatives Chambers support which include Bridging the Bar, IP Inclusive and sponsorships for scholarships that support social mobility to name but a few, please visit our Equality and Diversity and CSR pages.
