On 22 February 2024, we held our first ever Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) forum on Circuit at Park Square Barristers. The panel focused on underrepresented groups, discussing recruitment, retention and promotion at the Bar.

The panel consisted of Inn members Winston Hunter KC (Head of Chambers, Byrom Street Chambers) and Hafsah Hussain (Park Square Barristers), alongside Aisha Wadoodi (Recorder and Barrister, Fountain Chambers). Lisa Roberts KC (the Inn’s Senior Circuit Rep for the Northern Circuit), introduced and closed the panel, whilst Glenn Parsons (Park Square Barristers) chaired proceedings. The Chair of the Lincoln’s Inn EDI Committee, Chief Master Karen Shuman, was also in attendance.

We would like to thank Park Square Barristers, the Inn’s EDI Committee, our panelists and all of our attendees for making the event such a resounding success. You can find out more about the Inn’s EDI Committee here.
