By on February 1, 2015 in News

British Bangladeshi Power & Inspiration (BBPI) Person of the Year 2015 is Her Honour Judge Khatun Sapnara for her outstanding achievement as the first person of British Bangladeshi origin in a senior judicial position.

Khatun Sapnara was appointed by the Queen as a Circuit Judge in March 2014 becoming the first person of British Bangladeshi origin in a senior judicial position.

This follows a string of pioneering moves; being appointed Recorder of the Crown in 2006 and to the Family Justice Council in 2003 by the Lord Chancellor as an expert to advise the Government.

With 24 years legal experience in which she was recognised by the Legal 500 as a leading barrister, Khatun Sapnara now sits full time as a judge in family and criminal matters.
