BLS – Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Commitment


Our commitment to Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

Over the last 2 weeks we have seen unrest unfold in the USA following the death of George Floyd and the impact his death has had around the world, and especially on the black community and our professional colleagues within it. Our City is no exception, where the impact has also been felt keenly.

As an inclusive representative body we wish to restate our:

  • strong belief in justice & equality for all
  • our commitment to diversity & inclusion to improve representation in the local and wider profession
  • our commitment to promote the rule of law

As a business run by a regularly changing elected diverse council of volunteer lawyers from around Bristol and Bath, we will consider what actions we can take to help/support those affected in our profession and to actively challenge discrimination or prejudice within the sector and to promote diversity and inclusion in the delivery of our member services.

We believe that racism and all forms of discrimination and prejudice have no place in the justice system and legal profession, or in society at large. To that end we unequivocally add: Black Lives Matter

We are living in extremely challenging times and the impact of events like this can be felt all the more by not being able to come together as we normally would, and so, we would ask our members to reach out to each other to check in/be kind during this difficult time.
