The Perkins Brailler machine that Jessikah Inaba uses to write in braille, having passed the bar to qualifiy as the UK’s first blind black Barrister. Camden, London. Meet the UK's first blind and black barrister - who says she is thrilled to have smashed through the "triple glazed glass ceiling". See SWNS story SWTPbarrister. Jessikah Inaba, 23, qualified last week after studying for five years at university in London. She completed her entire course using Braille and credits her friends and tutors for helping to fill in the gaps. Jessikah, known as Jess, has now joined the Bar - likely as the nation's first blind and black barrister. None of the UK's many legal organisations contacted - including the four Inns of Court, the Bar Council and the Bar Standards Board - could find another example.
