Cultural Diversity

The current issue (March) of the Law Institute Journal exhorts us to embrace “cultural diversity”.  It’s a theme that often appears in this journal, accompanied by homilies about not discriminating and so on.  Issues such as briefing women barristers and the like have been mentioned in the past.   There’s an article giving  advise about crossing cultural borders….including, in the case of dealing with Muslims, the statement (on page 27) that-

“Some Muslims may have a preference for dealing with those of the same gender where possible”.

IMG_1680aI dare not think of the implications if a similar statement were to be made along the lines of male lawyers preferring to deal with barristers of the same gender!
