INTERVIEW | Her Honour Wendy Joseph QC | Former Old Bailey Judge


In this episode of British Murders, I welcome Her Honour Wendy Joseph QC to the show.⁣

 

Until March 2022, Wendy was a judge at the Old Bailey, sitting on criminal cases, trying mainly allegations of murder and other homicide.

 

She read English and Law at Cambridge, was called to the Bar by Gray's Inn in 1975, became a Queen's Counsel (QC) in 1998 and sat as a full-time judge from 2007 to 2022.

 

When she moved to the Old Bailey in 2012, she was the only woman amongst sixteen judges and only the third woman ever to hold a permanent position there.

 

She was also a Diversity and Community Relations Judge, promoting understanding between the judiciary and many different sectors of our community, particularly those from less privileged and minority groups.

 

She also mentors young people from various backgrounds who hope for a career in law and has a particular interest in helping women.

 

Wendy's first book 'Unlawful Killings', released on June 9, 2022, is available to purchase here:
