Increasing Judicial Diversity - JUSTICE Report

DATE: 27 Apr 2017

Nathalie Lieven QC has chaired JUSTICE's report on Increasing Judicial Diversity. The report examines the structural barriers faced by women, people from visible ethnic minorities and those from less advantaged socio-economic backgrounds in reaching the bench. The report explains why diversity is a vital constitutional issue, calls for systemic changes to increase accountability and improve recruitment processes, and proposes more inclusive routes to the senior bench.
