The Guardian recently published an opinion piece on diversity within the judiciary and wider legal profession. The piece points out that the 12 members of the UK Supreme Court are all white and all but one are men. 

However, a change may be on the cards. There are interviews taking place for the role of President of the Supreme Court and applications for the role of Lord Chief Justice recently closed. The Guardian rightly states that this is a good opportunity for a change in the judiciary. This could also set an example for the rest of the legal community.
