High Court: Where Are The Women Candidates?

I just read an article from the Telegraph in the UK about the lack of women candidates in the pool for the selection of High Court judges. It seems to me that recruitment and nurturing candidates are good ideas when it comes to achieving diversity in the courts.  Isn’t that what we had to do in the first place to get the gender-split enrollment to equal levels? Plant the ideas in childhood that women can be lawyers and they just might try in adulthood.  The same should be done for diversity purposes.  Let’s encourage minorities in North America and the UK to think about law school.  Things can change.
