Guardian Scotland Blog: Scottish law ‘will remain middle class unless ministers act’

An opinion piece by Tim Haddow, a member of the CFALP steering group, was published in today’s Guardian Scotland blog.  The article is written by him in his personal capacity and not on behalf of CFALP.

The article concludes:

Scotland’s legal system should fairly balance the needs and interests of all sections of society; that task will be almost impossible if the legal profession itself is overwhelmingly drawn from those from the most privileged backgrounds.

And if, in 25 years time, we are still lamenting the fact that our senior judges are mostly privately educated, it will because the Scottish government is doing nothing today to ensure that increasing diversity amongst law graduates is reflected in a broader legal profession.
