Senior counsel selection 2010: Keith Mason's view from the inside

Thu Oct 07 2010

One recommendation of the 2010 Gyles Report into the silk selection process was that a person who is not a practising barrister “but who by virtue of his or her qualifications is an appropriate person” should be a member of the Selection Committee. President Tom Bathurst QC asked the Hon Keith Mason AC QC to take up this challenge, which he duly accepted. As both "participant and observer" Mr Mason has written a "view from the inside" of what he describes as "a fascinating and exhaustive process".
