"The book explores serious issues of racism, sexism and class which continue to blight the legal system."
RLC member Alistair Fell reviews Alexandra Wilson's book 'In Black and White: A Young Barrister's Story of Race and Class in a Broken Justice System' awarding it a 5-star review for the Law Gazette.
Alexandra Wilson’s book is a personal account of her journey as an aspiring barrister and the many challenges she experienced along the way as a mixed-race woman. Indeed, since writing her book, the author has been a victim of racial prejudice at a magistrates’ court which was widely publicised in the media and drew much criticism from the Bar and legal sector.
Alistair concludes the incident was: "A sign, no doubt, of how far the system still has to go in overcoming prejudice and racism."
