The diversity journey

We’ve come so far – but it’s clear that more needs to be done to build a genuinely diverse and inclusive profession

Outside the law

Do I get nervous? Every. Single. Time. You hear of footballers having pre-game rituals, every time I got to court, I practice in my car and pretend the windscreen is the judge. If I don’t, I’m convinced I’ll stuff up and pronounce my own name wrong or call the judge ‘Mum!’
