New report on racism in the UK judiciary

This report raises urgent questions about racial attitudes and practices in the justice system in England and Wales. It draws on a survey of 373 legal professionals and finds:

  • 95% of respondents said that racial bias plays some role in the processes or outcomes of the justice system,
  • 29% said it played a ‘fundamental role’.
  • A majority of respondents had witnessed one or more judges acting in a racially biased way towards a defendant and in their decision-making.
The research was covered in various media outlets including The Times, The Guardian and ITV.
