In Focus

The In Focus series aims to have open and frank discussions with members and prospective barristers about issues that underrepresented groups in the profession may face and to discuss the progress being made and the distance to go.

The format is a roundtable to encourage attendees to share their experiences only if they feel comfortable doing so.
