Listen to an interview with author Ramya Nagesh about her new book “A Practical Guide To The Law In Relation To Hate Crime”.
Ramya, a specialist in criminal law at No5 has been a barrister for over seven years, during which time she has been instructed in a variety of cases for both the Prosecution and the Defence. Ramya acts in cases across the spectrum of criminal law, including serious sexual offences, large conspiracies and serious assaults. Ramya has also turned her hand to immigration, parole board and inquest hearings, where she has been instructed on a number of large public inquiries and inquests. Ramya has a particular interest in hate crime: she sits on the West Midlands Panel on Hate Crime, she has presented on the topic to representatives from the legal, governmental and third sector, and she has authored several articles on the subject for prominent legal journals.
‘A Practical Guide to The Law In Relation to Hate Crime’, is designed to provide a comprehensive guide to this fast-developing area of law. Its contents include an analysis of all the relevant legislation, an analysis of the main themes in hate crime cases, key Court decisions, and tips for approaching a case with a hate crime element. It was important to Ramya to ensure that it contained not only practical tips and overview of the law, but also chapters setting out deeper analysis and exploration of the law in relation to hate crime. In this way, Ramya intends for it to serve - in equal measure - as both a quick reference guide for the practitioner, and as a tool for those wishing to study it in more depth.
