Radcliffe Chambers(Social Mobility initiative)
Category: Chambers Diversity and Inclusion Initiative of the Year
Radcliffe Chambers is committed to increasing diversity at the Bar. In 2018, it furthered this commitment by collaborating with youth organisation Big Voice London to provide a first-of-its-type student barrister experience to a group of eight sixth formers from backgrounds that are underrepresented at the Bar.
The two-day programme aimed to inspire and support sixth formers considering a career in law, and was
structured around interactive workshops on law and advocacy, a visit to court and a number of career advice and mentoring sessions. Feedback from the participants was hugely positive.
