Equality and Diversity

We believe in a culture of positivity in the workplace where everyone is treated with respect.

As a Chambers and individual practising members, we do not discriminate either directly or indirectly on the basis of:

*Race, Ethnic or National Origin

*Sex or Sexual Orientation

*Marital Status


*Religious or Political Persuasion


Much of the work received into Chambers will request a particular individual to undertake it. In the case of non-designated work, the clerks will ensure that work is distributed in line with out Equal Opportunities policy.

KCH Garden Square clerks will not accept instructions from professional clients that are discriminatory. If a professional client refuses to withdraw a discriminatory instruction then the clerk will report the refusal to our Equality and Diversity Officer. In these circumstances, they will always report the incident to the relevant Bar Council Committee.



In line with the Bar Standards Board Equality & Diversity Rules of the Code of Conduct, KCH Garden Square is required to publish an anonymized summary of diversity data. The following data was collected in November 2015 and Chambers has been given permission to publish such information.
