Judge  Black gave an entertaining account of his legal career beginning with his early years as a solicitor with a criminal practice in Leeds. His many high-profile clients included Donald Neilson, the notorious murderer, armed robber and kidnapper nicknamed the “Black Panther”.

Judge Black became a stipendiary magistrate at Bow Street and then became a circuit judge, an appointment which included a two-year stint in Gibraltar, following his official retirement.

After moving to London, Judge Black served as President of the Western Marble Arch synagogue.

The supper, attended by 45 Kingston WIZO members and guests, was a social and financial success, with nearly £500 raised for WIZO projects in Israel.
