Equal Opportunities Overview

All solicitors must comply with Rule 6 of the Solicitors' Code of Conduct 2007:

"You must not in your professional dealings with employees, partners, members, directors, barristers, other lawyers, clients or third parties discriminate, without lawful cause, against any person, nor victimise or harass them..."
