In Focus: Being BAME at the Bar

This event is focused on Being BAME at the Bar and will be held on Tuesday 24 November. The event is a roundtable format, and we are hoping for interaction amongst our guests and speakers.

About the event

The roundtable kicks off the event with practising barristers and attendees discussing being BAME (Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic) at the bar. The event is open to all (including allies) and we encourage barristers who are from a BAME background or who have worked on discrimination cases to share their experiences. Speakers are also free to comment on any work that chambers may be doing to tackle issues facing practitioners in the workplace. Guests are encouraged to bring questions for discussion. The discussion is followed by a reception.

In the event that the In Focus session cannot be held in person due to government advice on COVID-19 and social distancing measures, this event will be held via a digital platform such as Zoom.

We will be able to update on this closer to the date.
