A Judicial Conversation on Identities and Judging

by | Apr 21, 2014

On 27 May, Justice Abella of the Supreme Court of Canada and Justice Baer of the German Constitutional Court discussed the role of intersectional identities in the judicial decision making process, as part of a series of lectures funded by the Bapsybanoo Marchioness of Winchester Lecturership. Their fascinating exchange reflected similarities and differences between their jurisdictions, and they responded to a range of questions from the audience. They drew upon personal experiences to highlight the pervasive role that identity plays in the process of judging, and gave an insight into the nuances of a judge’s use of identity and experience.

A full report of the judicial conversation will feature in our news section shortly.
