Equitable Briefing Policy

Gilshenan & Luton is committed to fair and equitable practises in the course of its legal practice.  We are a signatory to the Law Council of Australia's Equitable Briefing Policy

The goal of the policy is to promote equity and diversity across the legal profession, by encouraging law firms like ours to make all reasonable endeavours to brief female barristers with relevant seniority and expertise in their relevant practice area.  

The policy does not undermine a client's right to select the barrister of their choice but seeks to ensure that an appropriately diverse range of counsel is considered for each prospective brief. 

We are proud to adopt this policy as one tangible way of encouraging and reflecting an appropriately diverse and inclusive workplace.
