It is with great sadness that we inform you that Chambers has lost a much loved colleague, Susan Belgrave, who had bravely battled cancer for some time.

Susan was called to the Bar at Inner Temple in 1989, and completed her law degree in Barbados at Cave Hill Campus, the University of the West Indies. She spent her early years working in European law, situated in Brussels. She moved to London in 1992 with her late husband James, and came to specialise in the field of employment law, where she was widely recognised as a leading practitioner. Susan appeared in a number of high profile discrimination cases. She also devised and delivered diversity training programmes within Chambers and across the Bar, which were designed to make the world a better place. Her wisdom, quiet determination and good humour will be greatly missed.

Susan faced her illness always cheerful and optimistic, which reflected her true character in the face of adversity. Susan was passionate about the role of education, and was a trustee of The British Foundation For the University of the West Indies. She was a mentor and inspiration to others, and championed the role of women in the law. Susan is survived by her adult children, Richard and Alicia, to whom she was a wonderful mother, and of whom she was rightly proud.
