EQUALITY LAW PRACTICE

APPLICATIONS FOR TENANCY FOR LEADING BARRISTERS OF OVER 15 YEARS’ CALL WITH A SUBSTANTIAL EQUALITY LAW PRACTICE

Doughty Street Chambers has a unique and highly regarded expertise in domestic and international equality and discrimination law. 

Our barristers regularly advance ground-breaking cases under both the anti-discrimination provisions of the Equality Act 2010 and Article 14 of the European Convention of Human Rights (in the workplace, services and a range of other contexts), and use the public sector equality duty to challenge decisions taken in a wide range of areas of public sector provision.  As well as the work of our Employment/Discrimination and Administrative and Public Law teams, the upholding of the right to equality and non-discrimination is a strand that runs through the work done by our other civil teams, including the Actions Against the Police team, the Community Care and Health Team, the Education Team, the Housing and Social Welfare Team, the Immigration team, the Mental Health and Court of Protection team, the Prisoners’ Rights team and the Inquests and Inquiries team.  Several of our team members are on the Equality and Human Rights Commission’s list of preferred counsel. 

The continued development of our multi-disciplinary work in the above fields means that applications for tenancy are invited from leading barristers of over 15 years’ call, with a substantial equality law practice.  Applicants should have a focus on acting for claimants and a demonstrable commitment in human rights. 

 

Applicants should apply by completing and submitting the attached form by 4pm on Friday 22 September 2017.
