Anthony Graham

Justice Committee for the Law Society of England & Wales

I am a currently a serving member of the Access to Justice Committee at the Law Society of England & Wales. This committee offers valuable input to government proposals concerning legal aid matters pertaining to access to justice. The committee also, if necessary, holds the government to account if there are concerns with current/future policy which may affect the operating of the justice system in England & Wales.

A former board director, I am also a Policy Representative for the Black Solicitors Network (BSN) which advocates diversity in legal profession to attract aspiring black solicitors.

I have raised important issues in All-Party Parliamentary Groups (APPGs). I have spoken on a range of topics and highlighted negative effect lack of funding is having on criminal justice system, and disproportionate salary rates.

I have also responded to consultations, related to ED&I, Post Six Year Run-Off Cover (PSYROC), courts opening at weekends, disproportionate remuneration for women, alternative punishment schemes and support for BAME solicitors in private practice who have been subject to disproportionate rates of intervention from the SRA. 

I am involved with Urban Synergy an award-winning youth empowerment charity. I have supported as a mentor and seminar host for multiple events and workshops. I have acted as a moderator between panellists and schools and delivered speeches on training and other topics ranging from law to personal development.
