Judicial Racism and the Lammy Review

Thursday 2 December 2021

Judges, who are typically drawn from privileged backgrounds, wield vast power over the lives of the most marginalised people in society.

 

This lecture will explore the role of judicial racism in perpetuating injustice and inequality in the legal system. The Lammy Review found gross disparities sentencing for Black and white defendants – while also finding no systematic racial bias in juries’ decisions to convict or acquit. What should we do about racism in the judiciary and the legal profession?

A lecture by Leslie Thomas
