A Representative Magistracy for Britain

Delighted to be down in London with fellow magistrates who are all under 40 and Lord Adonis discussing ways to improve the representation of our magistracy in Britain.

A shocking 96% of magistrates are over 40 and only 12% are BAME. I myself am the only British Chinese Magistrate in the whole of the West Midlands and was the youngest when I got appointed over ten years ago. Time flies, and it has been an immensely enjoyable and rewarding experience making a real and lasting difference to my home city of Birmingham. Would strongly encourage anyone thinking of serving their community to apply and find out more information.
