Equality Statement

The death of George Floyd in Minneapolis on 25-05-20 has caused societies around the world to examine their own attitudes towards race and social difference and the exercise of justice and power. As a Chambers involved in the administration of justice we denounce all discrimination including systemic and institutional racism and all racial violence.

We at 9 St John Street Chambers are aware of the lack of diversity across the legal profession and in particular the under representation of Black and ethnic minority practitioners at the Bar and amongst the judiciary. At 9SJS we strive to work in a way that is inclusive and encourages and embraces the richness that diversity adds to the fabric of our organisation, to the Bar and to the legal profession generally. 

Justice is a right for everyone and not a privilege for the few. As a Chambers we endeavour to be part of the solution in the hope that sooner rather than later there can be a fair, inclusive and accessible justice system that throughout its ranks is representative of the society we live in and the communities we serve.
