In brief: Law student not discriminated against

A student at the Inns of Court School of Law who complained of racial disadvantage had her appeal dismissed by Mr Justice Gage, acting as Visitor to the Inns of Court. Justice Gage felt the student's failure was related to her failure to take advantage of academic assistance provided, rather than as a result of racial disadvantage or unequal opportunity. The student has been ordered to pay a portion of the legal costs incurred by the council but this order was not to be enforced without the leave of the court.
