Equality & Diversity

Tanfield Chambers is a firm believer in equal opportunities and we consider all applications for pupillage, tenancy or administrative positions on merit – regardless of age, sex, sexual orientation, gender-reassignment, race, colour, ethnic or national origin, nationality, religion or belief, marital or civil partnership status, maternity or pregnancy or disability and encourage and welcome applications from those who are under-represented at the bar.

Diversity Data Publication

The Bar Standards Board Code of Conduct states that a summary of the Diversity Data submitted by the Members of the Workforce be published on chambers’ website by 31 December 2012 and thereafter every three years. The summary for our 2019 data, in accordance with these rules, can be found here.
