Bar Standards Board Race Equality Taskforce launches reverse mentoring scheme

3 September, 2020

The Bar Standards Board (BSB) Race Equality Taskforce has launched a pilot reverse mentoring scheme, in which Bar students and pupil barristers from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic backgrounds will mentor senior barristers from White backgrounds.

The scheme, which was launched on Wednesday 2nd September, aims to address barriers to race equality and foster a more inclusive culture at the Bar. The first pairing will be between Elisha Lindsay, a Black female Bar student and race equality activist, and her mentee, Essex Court Chambers’ Paul Stanley QC.

More details about the scheme and details about how to apply can be found on the BSB website here.
