At DSC we are committed to promoting careers in the law to those from under-represented and disadvantaged backgrounds. We want to stifle the myth that there is an acceptable way to look, talk or act to be a member of the Bar. Through our outreach work, we aim to inspire, and provide access and resources, to those who may have not been able to previously consider a career at the Bar, or indeed clerking and other roles within Chambers.

We encourage candidates to give us a full picture of any mitigating circumstances, including neurodiversity and late diagnosis neurodivergence if applicable.

Our current outreach initiatives are listed below.
