Outreach & Associated Organisations
Chambers Outreach reflects its core values
Chambers is committed to supporting a number of organisations believing the bar and the legal profession to be a powerful driver of change. We are particularly committed to supporting charities which work within the less privileged and providing pro-bono advocacy support where appropriate.
Access to Justice and Equality and Diversity
Members of Chambers took part in and supported the great “London Legal Walk” in 2011 raising money for various legal charities.
Richard Cherry and David Collins continue to take time out from busy practices to participate in evening advice sessions at both North Kensington Law Centre and Waterloo Legal Advice Service.
Members volunteer to give advice and other support to clients referred to Chambers by the Bar Pro Bono Unit
The Head of Chambers is on the list of approved speakers held by the Bar Council to talk to state schools and colleges about a career at the Bar and life as a working barrister. The purpose of these talks is to inform young people from all backgrounds that being a barrister is a career open to them if they have the necessary aptitude, drive and commitment.
Youth and Community
Chambers provides a strong team of barrister student mentors to support school and college students participating in the Citizenship Foundation’s ‘Bar National Mock Trial Competitions’. We see this as a positive initiative designed to educate and to encourage access to the Bar for all. Please see this link for more details.
Our clerks and Members of Chambers provide support and kit for the Centre Sport Football Club, a Sunday League Group located in South London. We follow their progress up the Sunday League with interest and offer visits to Chambers for those interested in how the law works.
National Deaf Children’s Society
As part of our Disability Awareness plan Chambers has undertaken to sponsor the National Deaf Children’s Society for the year commencing 2013.
