IWD Choose to Challenge

IWD Article Series – The Importance of Being Equitable


To mark International Women’s Day 2021, and this year’s theme ‘Choose to Challenge’, members of Carmelite Chambers have contributed articles highlighting and challenging an aspect of the Justice System that impacts women’s rights and welfare.

In this article, Ben Heaviside, our Senior Clerk discusses the importance of practice management, fair allocation of work and a tailored approach to clerking those returning from parental leave to ensure that female barristers in particular are able to stay – and flourish – at the independent Bar.
