Notes

  1. As Chambers has less than ten Queens Counsel, we are unable to publish data from this category as this would breach data protection guidelines.
  2. 18 junior members and one member of staff declined to provide information.
  3. None of those that provided diversity data disclosed a disability.
  4. The definition Black minority Ethnic (BME) refers to people who do not define themselves as being white using the 2001 Census definition.
