Hashi Mohamed is one of the UK’s leading junior barristers, a BBC broadcaster and an author. He was called to the Bar (The Honourable Society of Lincoln’s Inn) in 2010, and currently practices public law at No5 Chambers, with a specific focus on planning and environmental law. Hashi came to the UK as an unaccompanied 9-year-old refugee in 1993, speaking only basic English. Surviving on state benefits and attending failing schools in North West London, he ultimately graduated from Oxford University and now writes regularly for The Times, The Guardian and Prospect Magazine. He also presents documentaries on BBC Radio 4, most recently a programme marking the 20th anniversary of the inquiry into the death of Stephen Lawrence. Hashi’s first book, ‘People Like Us: What It Takes To Make It In Modern Britain’, was published in January 2020.
