equality team, in partnership with the BSB Supervision Team,
regularly conducts monitoring exercises aimed at understanding
levels of compliance and how well chambers are implementing the
equality rules of the Handbook.
These exercises also help us to understand the impact of
BSB initiatives designed to support chambers in meeting the
requirements of the rules and to maintain compliance with them.
In 2013 our equality team undertook a "progess check" exercise

awareness of the rules, compliance rates and use of BSB equality

with a different representative sample of chambers. This exercise
solely focused on compliance rates in relation to the
rules. Click on the link on the right to read the full
