"The legal system has an outsize impact on the lives of the most marginalised. Every day, courts decide whether to send people to prison; whether to evict people from their homes; whether to separate children from their parents; and whether to block deportation, extradition or removal. In our racially unequal society, people of colour are disproportionately impacted by these decisions. Yet the judges and advocates involved in these critical decisions are overwhelmingly white and from privileged backgrounds. As a Black barrister in a predominantly white legal system, I have witnessed endemic racism in the courts - and I have seen how easy it is for legal professionals to lose sight of the human beings whose lives depend on our work. In this lecture I will talk about how barristers can challenge institutionalised racism and work towards a genuinely anti-racist legal practice."
Followed by Q&A.
