1MCB Chambers was founded in 1977, with the aim of providing quality representation to all sectors of the community. We recognise the importance of having a membership that reflects the communities we work with and to that end we continue to be committed to being approachable and accessible to all, and strive to maintain and promote diversity within our membership.

Chambers encourages applications from all sections of the community irrespective of sex, gender, sexual orientation, race, ethnic or national origin, marital status, disability, religion, or age and seeks to support under-represented sections of society gain experience at the Bar and become members of Chambers.

Our Equality and Diversity Officer is Michael Sprack.  In line with our equality and diversity policy we survey our members and staff every three years in order to help identify any sectors of the community which are underrepresented within chambers and in line with the Bar Standards Board’s Code of Conduct. The survey is conducted on a voluntary basis and you can view the anonymised diversity data here.
