Organised and hosted by Alex Raikes, the High Sherriff of the County and City of Bristol 2022, A Lifetime for Justice brought to life the breadth and depth of the legal and criminal justice system – and explored what needs to be done to increase diversity within it.
Thought-provoking and trailblazing, the event includes former President of the Supreme Court (and the first woman President) Baroness Hale and Dr Leroy Logan, one of the UK’s most highly decorated Black police officers who also set up the Black Police Association. They are joined by I. Stephanie Boyce, the sixth female and the first Black President of the Law Society of England and Wales, who will be interviewed by Anjali Gohil, Chair of BarNone and a criminal barrister at Guildhall Chambers, Bristol. Clive Stafford Smith, a British attorney who specialises in the area of civil rights and campaigning against the death penalty in the US completes the line-up of speakers.
