Black Lives Matter

Nexus Chambers passionately believes endemic racism, discrimination based upon the colour of a person’s skin or for any other reason has no place in our world. Black Lives Matter. It is our common social, moral, and legal burden to enact the changes and secure the justice that is withheld from those who need it.

 

We condemn the words and stance being taken by the President of the United States over the death of George Floyd and ask that the United Kingdom’s government make it clear that this country does not support the use or threat of force to curtail legitimate protest.

 

Nexus Chambers is committed to fighting inequality and promoting access to justice. In a profession plagued by under-representation of BAME members of society, we are proud to be one of the most diverse leading sets of chambers in the country. Nexus Chambers is ready to assist those who fight against racism and oppression.

 

These are trying times where different strands of our democracy will clash with each other.  The barristers at Nexus Chambers will seek to foster understanding when freedom to protest clashes with restricted freedom of association.  We will defend freedom of expression and seek to build bridges when it clashes with property rights.

 

At Nexus Chambers we want to see lasting changes come out of the current times.  What those changes are is up to all of us.  Nexus Chambers will continue to defend, learn from and work with those who are promoting and forging an anti-racism ideal that benefits all of our society.
