Hijab-wearing criminal barrister becomes first to be appointed Queen’s Counsel

A hijab-wearing lawyer has been appointed to the Queen’s Counsel, the first criminal barrister to do so. Sultana Tafadar QC, of No5 Barristers’ Chambers in London, celebrated taking silk at a ceremony at the Palace of Westminster. The Luton-born lawyer with Bangladeshi roots hopes her success will provide inspiration and confidence for other female lawyers from black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds.
