Barrister Chloe Branton announced as a Social Mobility Advocate as part of the Bar Council #IAmTheBar campaign.
In Summer 2018, the Bar Council launched 'I am the Bar', to profile the experiences of those who have succeeded at the Bar from "non-traditional" backgrounds. The award-winning campaign is designed to:
- Raise the profile of social mobility to encourage aspiring barristers from under-represented backgrounds.
- Highlight efforts made to improve access to & diversity at the Bar.
- Support efforts to improve insight into the profession, drawing together social mobility efforts across chambers, Inns, other organisations and individual barristers.
