Spin-off series: I am the Bench

IATBench

In Autumn 2018, the Bar Council's "I am the Bar" campaign extended to a series profiling the judiciary: "I am the Bench". 

Three judges shared their stories with us. As well as helping to demystify the role of judges and the routes to getting there, these three stories demonstrate the importance of attracting more individuals from a diverse range of backgrounds to a career as a judge so that they are representative of society when passing judgment on their peers.

Read about their journeys below.
