Published on 30 March 2021

Our mission is to create a world where important legal matters are always addressed with the best intelligence and professional expertise, wherever it exists. 

As a core value, championing Diversity and Inclusion is very important to Chambers and Partners, both internally in our business but also across the whole of the legal market world-wide.  

Our dedicated Chambers D&I programme works both internally and externally to further diversity within the legal profession, through  research, insights, articles and events . Our dedicated team work across all Chambers departments to implement our diversity and inclusion strategy, as well as working with law firms and clients to highlight positive action and share guidance.

We play an instrumental role in helping law firms, in-house legal teams and chambers in furthering the advancement of diversity and inclusion in the legal profession by shining a light on best practice and trailblazers in the field.

Chambers D&I Awards and Events

We first launched the Chambers Women in Law Awards in the USA in 2013. In 2015 we expanded our awards programme into Latin America before officially becoming Chambers Diversity and Inclusion.

While North America and Latin America have remained flagship events, we also have awards for the UK Bar, Europe and Asia Pacific. The categories we recognise have expanded as well, to include pro bono and sustainability awards.

Chambers D&I events are internationally recognised achievements of excellence in furthering the advancement of diversity and inclusion. We highlight the work of lawyers at all levels who are leaders in creating and fostering diverse pathways in the legal profession.

Chambers D&I Content

The Chambers D&I blog promotes the trailblazing work that firms and in-house legal teams are involved to further the advancement of diversity and inclusion. Through interviews, in-depth case studies, podcasts and more, we bring interest and impactful stories to our audience.

We also publish regional reports on the key themes and trends developing in diversity, pro bono and sustainability work. These reports feature editorial and case studies providing best practice guidance on how individuals and organisations can create change where they work.

D&I in the Research

We are continually improving our research process based on the latest technology, client needs and sector developments. As diversity and inclusion has increasingly become an essential aspect of what clients look for in law firms, we have made sure our research takes account of this.

To do so, we collect diversity data for all of our guides. This helps us to better understand the demographic make-up of the profession and ensure our rankings are reflective of the breadth of diversity. You can find out more here.  

We have also updated our absence leave policy and issued a tolerance statement. You can also find general FAQs about our D&I statement here
