Equal Opportunities


All solicitors must comply with Rule 6 of the Solicitors' Code of Conduct 2007:

6.01 Duty not to discriminate

"You must not in your professional dealings with employees, partners, members, directors, barristers, other lawyers, clients or third parties discriminate, without lawful cause, against any person, nor victimise or harass them..."

Rule 6 is designed to prevent discrimination and our workshop is designed to ensure you are clear about your professional obligations and how to put them into practice.
