Diversity and Inclusion

3PB Barristers participates in a wide range of initiatives to encourage greater diversity and inclusion at the Bar including Bar None, the Western Circuit Women’s Forum, and mentoring in schools programmes. 3PB’s dedicated Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Group actively works to provide support in chambers and, alongside our pupillage committee and Head of Pupillage, looks to encourage greater access to the profession, both at 3PB and across the Bar and the wider legal profession.
