“I have always been encouraged to seek judicial appointment, but it was important to me to do so when the time was right for my family.

“I pay two particular tributes – firstly to the sisterhood at the Bar – I am lucky to have known such incredibly talented, inspirational and supportive women and secondly to my own special cheerleader – my sister, Sukhwinder Hazra.“

Tony McDaid, Chief Executive and Director of Clerking at No5 Barristers’ Chambers, said: “We are delighted for Dewinder on her appointment as a District Judge. Dewinder has been with No5 for 9 years and has made a significant contribution to the success of the Family Group in that time.
