Ms Blacklaws' comments need some explanation. Is she seriously saying that a solicitor in this situation must refuse to act any further for the client unless the client withdraws the relevant instruction?

"A solicitor should refuse their client’s instruction if it involves the solicitor in a breach of the law or the code of conduct." What breach of the law (or the code of conduct) does she think the solicitor is committing?

Is it a breach of the law (or code) to have a client who is a racist or who thinks (correctly) that judges are usually male and white? No, it's not.
