We spoke with Dr Tunde Okewale MBE, a barrister at Doughty Street Chambers. We discussed how Tunde’s journey to the Bar led to him creating his own social mobility and social justice charity, Urban Lawyers. We also discussed why 2020 was a defining year for racial justice and equity, and how events in the USA led to the launch of a collaborative initiative to fight racial injustice, One Case At A Time (OCAAT), that he co-leads. Tunde also offered his insights on how representative leadership is essential to advancing diversity and inclusion in the legal profession, and explained what steps the Bar must take to get there.
