Her Honour Judge Barbara Mensah, His Honour Judge Kwame Inyundo, Employment Judge Adenike Balogun and Employment Judge Andrew Zimuto recently visited Christ the King Emmanuel Sixth Form College in Lewisham to speak to students about their respective careers in the judiciary and to discuss Black History Month.

The visit formed part of the judiciary’s school engagement outreach programme, which aims to educate pupils about the work of judges, magistrates, and the wider judiciary. During the visit, the judges answered questions about their roles and shared their experience of the judiciary. They also discussed the importance of having a diverse and inclusive judiciary.

Putting this year’s Black History Month theme of ‘Time for Change – Action Not Words’ into practice, the judges shared their thoughts on how pupils could apply some of the lessons learnt towards their chosen career paths.

The visit continues the workstream supported by the Diversity and Community Relations Judges (DCRJs) and magistrates, as they work to encourage students from all backgrounds to consider a career in the justice system.
