The Bar Standards Board (BSB) introduced regulation which requires Chambers to gather and publish the diversity data of Chambers’ workforce. The survey was conducted during 2017 in accordance with the questionnaire devised by the BSB (based on the model proposed by the Legal Services Board). The survey was entirely voluntary and it was conducted in such a way to guarantee the anonymity of those who contributed.
