New research by the Law Society has found it will take more than 120 years before women, Black and Asian people are properly represented within the judiciary if current trends persist. Society president Lubna Shuja said it was “unacceptable” it could take over 120 years for women, Black and Asian people to represent the society they serve on the bench. She said: “We need a judiciary that truly reflects our diverse society. We must take action and make real, lasting change”.
