New Square Chambers are finalists at the Legal 500 ESG UK Awards 2024
We are thrilled to announce that New Square Chambers has secured a place as finalists in this year’s Legal 500 ESG UK Awards for 2024, earning recognition in the ‘Governance: Initiative/Team of the Year’ category.
These inaugural awards represent a significant milestone, celebrating outstanding ESG initiatives throughout the UK legal market, spanning private practice, in-house, and the Bar. This prestigious first-time event will see organisations and individuals recognised for their efforts to bring about change across all aspects of ESG; including diversity & inclusion and environmental and sustainability strategy.
At New Square Chambers, we are equally committed to fostering a culture that actively embraces and champions ESG. This commitment permeates every facet of our work and serves as a guiding principle behind numerous decisions and initiatives within our set. We are thankful to our dedicated members of Chambers, and to our efficient and hardworking clerking team and staff for their ongoing efforts.
Jessica Powers has been instrumental in spearheading numerous diversity and inclusion initiatives, which have led to multiple nominations across various DEI and ESG awards over the years. Late last year, Jessica was awarded in the ‘Diversity & Inclusion: Future Leader’ category at Chambers UK Bar Awards, with New Square Chambers also named as finalist in the ‘Diversity & Inclusion: Outstanding Set’ category. Additionally, Jessica was recognised as ‘Barrister of the Year’ at the Inspirational Women in Law Awards. Furthermore, we were honoured to receive the ‘ESG Programme of the Year’ award at the Legal Business Awards 2023.
The winners will be revealed on Wednesday 24 April, during the grand ceremony at the Intercontinental London, Park Lane. Congratulations to all those recognised at these awards this year.
