A Barrister’s Guide to Ranking: Q&A with Chambers & Partners and The Legal 500 – will take place on 22 February 2021 from 5.30pm – 7pm. If you would like to attend, please book your place here.
During this 90-minute Q&A session, both directories will provide a brief overview of how their ranking systems work before answering your questions. The focus of the event will be on individual rather than organisational level submissions to provide barristers with a clearer idea of how to make an argument for your chambers or firm to support your application; and what you can do to make sure you are ready to apply.
This event is aimed at practising barristers and clerks, particularly those who have Black barristers within their chambers.
A joint event by ChBA, COMBAR, TECBAR and A&O. The London barrister and author of memoir A Dutiful Boy, Mohsin Zaidi will be joining us for a conversation.
Mohsin’s book focuses on his experiences growing up gay in a strict Muslim household as well as addressing themes of race, class and mental health. A Dutiful Boy, named in the Guardian and GQ Magazine‘s Best Books of 2020, is a coming of age memoir about Mohsin Zaidi’s life. Mohsin grew up in east London in a devout Muslim household in which being gay would be inconceivable. A young closeted Mohsin attended an inner city school where violence was a fact of life and his drive led him to become the first person from his school to attend Oxford University. At university, he was able to be his true self but when confronted by his father, he was invited to be ‘cured’ by a witch doctor. Mohsin will discuss his battle with shame and the long journey to acceptance him and his family faced, overcoming religious and cultural barriers in the process. Please register by clicking here. This session will be recorded.
We welcome all practitioners (barristers and solicitors) and practice managers. This includes more junior practitioners who want a better understanding of what the application and life in silk entails. Questions can be sent to the email address below and will be addressed by the panel.
This event is organised by the Equality and Diversity Sub-Committees of TECBAR, COMBAR and ChBA and has been generously supported by Gray’s Inn.
Nicholas Vineall QC (who represented the LMAA before the Supreme Court) and a panel of experienced arbitrators (Hilary Heilbron QC, Christopher Style QC and Clare Ambrose) will discuss the decision and its ramifications.
