The Supreme Court are looking for three new judges and are making a concerted effort to ensure that the new members will make the Court more diverse.
There is currently only one woman member and I would certainly like to see more!
The decision to make the Judiciary more diverse has received wide praise and is certainly a positive step.
The supreme court began its search for three new judges on Thursday, seeking members who will “improve the diversity of the court”. Of the court’s 11 current members, 10 are men and all are white. Just two were not privately educated. On Thursday, the court’s president Lord Neuberger said he and his colleagues want that to change. “What we are looking for is to recruit on the basis that the court becomes more diverse,” he said.
