BACFI Event: Race and the Bar


Wednesday 3rd November, 6pm

Following Black History month, we are proud to present  Simon Regis, 2020 Employed Barrister of the Year and co-chair of the Bar Council’s Race Working Group

Race and the Bar – moving things forward

What the Bar Council and other bodies and individuals at the Bar are doing in relation to race to instigate lasting change.

Simon qualified at the Bar in 1997 and moved into public sector employed practice in 1998, firstly at the CPS, then joining the Government Legal Service (as then was) at HM Customs & Excise. He undertook two non-legal roles (Home Office and Council of Europe) before returning to HM Revenue & Customs. He then joined the Treasury Solicitor’s Department, now Government Legal Department (GLD) in 2009 and has undertaken both litigation and advisory roles (including 3 years at a public inquiry). He is now a Deputy Director at DCMS Legal Advisers leading a team on matters dealing with Culture, Sport and Gambling.
