Only 85% of high court judges men
Jess McCabe // 7 October 2008
The number of female High Court judges is set to rise to “record levels”, reports the Independent.
While this is good news, don’t get too excited – 85% of them are still men.
Baroness Prashar, JAC [Judicial Appointments Commission] chairman said: “I am delighted that we are making progress and that our strenuous efforts are beginning to show results.
“We expect the composition of the senior judges will gradually come to reflect society more closely.”
