Having undertaken a comprehensive review of our parental leave policy (in 2018) Chambers is proud to have introduced an updated policy in line with the Bar Council’s recommendations on shared parental leave. Our aim as a Chambers was to introduce a forward-thinking and generous policy that would help facilitate the return to practice of our Members after the birth or adoption of a child. Our policy recognises the challenges faced by barristers during this period and provides important financial and practical support in order to try to assist parental carers when returning to work after a period of parental leave and encourage the retention of such Members to practice at the Bar. The parental leave policy may be found here.
