Essex Court Chambers is delighted to announce a collaborative programme of events directed at issues of diversity in recruitment to the commercial Bar. Together with Brick Court Chambers, Fountain Court Chambers and One Essex Court, we are hosting an event in Oxford on 12 November under the headline, “A career as a commercial barrister: a great choice for women”. Women from all four sets will give short presentations about their working lives and work/life balance, and students will have an opportunity to network with barristers. The event will be introduced by Dame Sara Cockerill DBE, one of the few women High Court judges to sit in the Commercial Court. This is the first in a planned series of events which we intend to roll out across a number of universities. All – men and women, law and non-law students – are welcome.
