In conversation with Hashi Mohamed – From child refugee to top barrister

When: Monday 15 November 2021Time: 15:00 - 16:00 GMT

Hashi Mohamed came to Britain aged nine, as an unaccompanied child refugee. He attended some of Britain’s worst schools and was raised exclusively on state benefits. Yet today he is a successful barrister, with an Oxford degree and a CV that includes numerous appearances on the BBC.

He will be joining us to discuss his book People Like Us which explores what his own experience can tell us about social mobility in Britain today. Far from showing that anything is possible, he concludes his story is far from typical: our country is still riven with deep divisions that block children from deprived backgrounds from accessing the advantages that are handed to others from birth.

This session will be chaired by Tom Barton, Managing Associate at Mishcon de Reya and will be held virtually on Zoom.
