Bridging the Bar – Founding Members
Date: 26 August 2020
We are pleased to announce ourselves as founding partners of Bridging the Bar (BTB), a charity committed to the promotion of equal opportunities and diversity within the Bar of England and Wales at all professional levels.
BTB aims to support students from all underrepresented groups including those from a low socio-economic background, Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic background, those who identify as being part of the LGBTQ+ community, students who have a disability or long-term health condition and other communities who are “statistically underrepresented in the profession”. We share BTB’s belief that “for any organisation to reach its full potential, it must reflect the diverse society that we live in”. To read more about BTB’s objectives please click here.
