The Women, Influence & Power in Law (WIPL) UK Awards honours top female lawyers who have made a remarkable difference in the legal profession this past year - whether in shaping the law, achieving outstanding results for their clients, being an outstanding jurist or assisting those in need of legal services.

We were delighted to be awarded 'Outstanding in DE&I' and the 'Social Mobility Award'. Winners were announced at the WIPLUK award ceremony that took place on Wednesday 6 March 2024.

We are proud to be recognised for our commitment to diversity, particularly for our long-term mentoring scheme, 'Access to the Bar for All'. The scheme awards scholarships to two students, if they study Law, of £7000 per year over three years, and allocates a barrister mentor over the five-year period. We currently have two law students receiving these scholarships.

Access to the Bar For All won 'Outstanding Contribution to Diversity & Inclusion' at the Chambers Bar Awards for two years running in 2019 and 2020, and was previously awarded ‘Diversity Initiative of the Year’ at the Diversity Legal Awards in 2017 and was shortlisted for ‘Diversity Project of the Year’ at the Women in Law Awards 2020.

We were founded in 1974 with a commitment to promote social justice and equality. These ‘revolutionary’ aspirations have shaped our standards and we have consistently worked towards achieving social progress. Our motto: ‘Do right, fear no-one’, encapsulates this stance of achieving justice and defending the rights of individuals through an innovative and bold approach.
