LGBT+ equality and inclusion
We work with FreeBar to promote best practice in lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and others’ equality. We ensure that all LGBT+ people are accepted without exception in our workplace.
Disability and accessibility
Our client areas have full services for those with disabilities, including induction loops, blue badge parking at the entrance and level access. Should any reasonable adjustments be required for your visit please contact our clerks.
We make every effort to protect the wellbeing of all of our personnel. We have six trained Wellbeing Officers who are on hand to offer support and signposting to assistance. We ensure that no-one has to deal with wellbeing issues on their own.
We were one of the first chambers to be awarded a Wellbeing Certificate of Recognition by the Bar Council, recognising best practice and commitment.

Equality and Diversity Policy
Our Equality and Diversity Policy can be found here.
We are committed to providing a work environment in which all individuals are treated fairly and with dignity and respect.
We are continually examining ways to ensure that our workforce mix reflects our wider community and we make every effort to give everyone the opportunity to succeed, regardless of identity or origin.
By doing so, all of our personnel contribute to delivering the best possible service to all of our clients.
Ropewalk Chambers is committed to being an anti-racist organisation and fully supports the Bar Standards Board’s Anti-Racist Statement.
Anti-racism and diversity issues inform all of our recruitment processes and we continually look to support under-represented groups.
All personnel within Ropewalk Chambers receive anti-racism training and fair treatment and opportunity is continuously and rigorously examined.
We take positive outreach steps and participate in the 10,000 Black Interns scheme and the Bridging the Bar initiative, amongst others.
We are committed to robustly challenging any individual or organisation that acts in a way that is contrary to these values.
