“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.
