Nexus Chambers and the members of Nexus Chambers (‘members of chambers’), in relation to their professional practice and the administration of chambers, aim to treat everyone equally and to ensure that no job applicant, employee, worker, member, client, or visitor is discriminated against, victimised, or harassed on the grounds of a protected characteristic. The protected characteristics are: age; disability; gender reassignment; marriage and civil partnership; pregnancy and maternity; race; religion or belief; sex; and sexual orientation. The affairs of chambers are conducted in a manner which is fair and equitable for all barristers and pupils, and Nexus Chambers aims to ensure that no job applicant, employee, worker, member, pupil, prospective member or pupil, client, or visitor is treated less favourably nor placed at a disadvantage on the grounds of their part-time status or trade union activities.
Nexus Chambers wholeheartedly endorse the BSB’s anti-racist statement - we support the BSB in seeking to reduce race inequality at the Bar of England and Wales.
We are proud of the diversity of our membership. Nexus Chambers passionately believe racism and discrimination on the basis of the colour of one’s skin have no place in our world.
