The Lammy Review: A Conversation and Drinks Reception
Date: 2nd October 2017
Time: 6pm Registration for 6.30pm start
Venue: Middle Temple Hall
On 8 September 2017 the Government published an independent review into the treatment of, and outcomes for, Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic individuals in the Criminal Justice System. The report concludes that BAME individuals still face bias, including overt discrimination, and makes a number of recommendations which must be implemented.
Following an introduction by David Lammy MP, Greg Foxsmith will chair a panel of guest speakers including Sandra Paul, Partner in the Criminal Department of Kingsley Napley LLP, Courtenay Griffiths QC of 25 Bedford Row and Judy Khan QC of Garden Court discussing their interpretations of the Lammy Review and how we as solicitors and barristers working in criminal law can help to achieve #ColourBlindJustice
There will be a one hour drinks reception following the conference which we hope will provide an opportunity to discuss the issues raised with friends and colleagues.
