THE SELECT band of female heads of chambers has been joined by Laura Cox QC, newly elected to lead Cloisters Chambers.
Cox is the first woman to be elected as head of the leading civil rights set, which boasts 12 QCs among its 40 tenants. The employment, discrimination and professional negligence law specialist is chair of the Bar Council's sex discrimination committee and was recently appointed a recorder.
Her election is highly fitting as she played a major role in the drawing up of the Bar Council's equality code which aims to get rid of discrimination at the Bar.
She said: "My aim as head of chambers is for Cloisters to maintain its broad practice base while enhancing still further its commitment to being one of the foremost civil liberties chambers in the country."
