13th June 2022
In celebration of Pride Month, we hosted the final of our inaugural student Pride moot on Thursday 9th June. We are proud to be a part of an open and inclusive environment at the commercial Bar.
Chambers were honoured to have Lady Justice Carr chair the judging panel alongside Rachel Ansell KC and Richard Osborne of 4 Pump Court, Paul Maddock of DWF and David Kidman of Simmons & Simmons. The evening was compered and supported by Daniel Churcher and Elliott Cook from Chambers.
Her Ladyship commented
“It is vitally important that the commercial Bar is, and is seen as, an inclusive and diverse part of the profession, open to everyone with the talent to succeed. I hope that 4 Pump Court’s Pride Month moot, and similar initiatives, can play a part in reinforcing the message to those considering a legal career that equality and diversity are valued and celebrated at the commercial Bar.”
A huge well done to our finalists Alexis Boddy, Bartek Wytrzyszczewski and Morsale Ghafooryar, and congratulations to the winners, Alexis and Bartek.
We look forward to welcoming all three for a mini pupillage.
