7KBW is committed to the fair recruitment of the best candidates from the widest possible pool of talent.
As part of this commitment, Chambers participates in the Pegasus Access and Support Scheme (PASS) and the Bar Placement Scheme, both of which are designed to expand opportunities for students from under-represented groups to experience life in Chambers. Members of Chambers are also involved in mentoring to support students from non-traditional backgrounds who are interested in pursuing a career in law, and in particular at the Bar, including through schemes operated by IntoUniversity, the Bar Council, City University, and the Inns of Court.
The promotion of equality and diversity is a central consideration in the design and implementation of our recruitment processes. In particular, we use the same objective and fair criteria for all candidates, assessing candidates solely on merit, irrespective of race (including colour, nationality, citizenship and ethnic or national origin), sex, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, pregnancy/maternity, marital status or civil partnership, age, religion, belief (including political persuasion) or disability.
All members of our selection panels are trained in fair recruitment and selection processes.
Concerning disability, we will make reasonable adjustments to the application process for pupillage and tenancy for disabled applicants.
