Atkin Chambers was pleased to sponsor King’s College London Bar & Mooting Society’s Networking with Black and Asian Barristers event on 24 January 2019.
Billed as “an opportunity for students to network with Black and Asian barristers from all practice areas, reshaping the image many students have of the Bar”, the event welcomed Dame Linda Dobbs, the first ever non-white person to be appointed to the Senior Judiciary of the UK, as a guest speaker.
“We are pleased to support this event,” commented Fiona Parkin QC, head of the pupillage committee at Atkin Chambers. “As a set we are committed to equality and diversity in both recruitment and the provision of services, and supportive of wider efforts across the Bar and the legal profession to improve access to the profession and diversity in all its forms.”
“Networking with Black and Asian Barristers” was organised in collaboration with Cake & Counsel. Atkin Chambers and The Chancery Bar Association sponsored the event.
