Senior Liaison Judges for Diversity

The two Senior Liaison Judges for Diversity are Mrs Justice Ingrid Simler and Mr Justice Jeremy Baker.

The two judges provide leadership on diversity issues across the whole judiciary; they promote public confidence in the justice system; and they engage with the legal professions to encourage and assure applicants from all backgrounds that appointment to judicial office is based solely on merit.

They are members of the Judicial Diversity Committee of the Judges Council and work closely with the Ministry of Justice, the Judicial College, the Judicial Appointments Commission, the Law Society, the Bar Council, CILEX and others.
