Ruth's portrait

Learning. Hope. Luck.

Ruth Kirby

Children’s Law Barrister

Ruth’s is a serious business. She takes on very challenging cases including children kidnapped by a parent, or jihadist parents trying to radicalise their kids. “Learning. Hope. Luck” is both the explanation that Ruth gives for her own journey and the advice she gives to others.

“Those three words are the things that can break the bad patterns that damage families and can help kids get out and have happy, fulfilled lives.”
