About this paper
This is an independent review by Lord Bracadale.
Lord Bracadale is a retired judge who has been asked to look at hate crime law and see if it needs to change.
The law on hate crime is to protect people who become the victim because of their:
1. Race (the country they or their family come from)
4. Sexual orientation (a person's sexual preference or identity as bisexual, heterosexual, or homosexual)
5. Transgender identity (being born a man and living as a woman or born a woman and living as a man)
The next part of this paper is about what we want to find out.
