We publish below our (now annual) profiles of a selection of recently appointed KCs.
I am delighted to be able to publish below our annual profiles of a selection of recently appointed KCs. These profiles have been published for nearly ten years now in order to celebrate the increasingly diverse backgrounds and experiences of those appointed to silk. We define diversity broadly in these profiles, not just reflecting those characteristics protected by law but also diversity of family background and of geographical location, as well as applicants who have pursued niche specialisms within the law and those who have pursued varied and interesting careers before turning to law.
We are heartened by feedback – including from those profiled – that these profiles have inspired advocates to see that the accolade of KC
is for ‘people like me’, sometimes tipping the balance in their decision to apply for silk. I hope that you enjoy reading the stories of these inspiring new KCs.
Monisha Shah, Chair of the KC Selection Panel
