Women’s rights barrister faces suspension for accusing judge of ‘boys’ club’ attitude

Press/Media: Expert comment


The letter, spearheaded by Shera Research Group, argues the accusations levied against Dr Proudman are “oppressive” and “unjust” and warns she appears to have been “targeted unfairly by those in power to silence dissent and maintain control”.

It states: “We do not believe that Dr Proudman’s comments about a judgement by Sir Jonathan Cohen undermine the integrity of the system or reduce confidence in it; to the contrary, we believe it takes immense integrity to publicly defend a vulnerable individual from a judge who holds significant power.

“We ask the Bar Standards Board to withdraw its misguided prosecution and to issue a formal and public apology to Dr Proudman.”
