The Failing Criminal Justice System with Jo Sidhu KC


Law Simplified was recently joined by Jo Sidhu KC, the Former Chairman of the Criminal Bar Association, leading King’s Counsel, and a highly respected criminal practitioner. He has a number of accolades under his belt. He was recently voted as one of top 101 most influential Asians in the UK and winner of the Asian Professional of the Year (2016). Jo shared his journey to the Bar and spoke at length about the strike action. He told us why he wanted to be the man that took up the fight against the government in a bid to save the failing criminal justice system, and what progress has been made since. We also wanted you to acquaint yourself with Jo, outside of his role as a barrister. He shared his favourite hobbies and activities and his most shocking case or moment in court.
