Alistair Fell reviews “In Black and White: A Young Barrister’s Story of Race and Class in a Broken Justice System”

20. Oct 2020

"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."
