Society of Black Lawyers

From Wikipedia, in a visual modern way

The Society of Black Lawyers (SBL) was founded in the United Kingdom by Rudy Narayan in 1969, as the Afro-Asian and Caribbean Lawyers Association.[1] By 1981, it was known as its current name.[2] It was co-chaired by Narayan and Sibghat Kadri.[3][4]

It aims to promote the rights and welfare of lawyers of colour,[5] as well the rights of people of colour in the community who need legal protection or are facing harassment.[6][7]

Since 1984, its chair has been Peter Herbert, a retired judge.[6][5][8]
