We are delighted to announce that JUSTICE will hold a unique fundraising event on 7th June 2019 to celebrate 100 years of women in the law in the UK.

The event will see a panel of ten incredible women join Lady Hale in sharing their stories of lives in the law – speaking frankly about what has worked and what hasn’t, the drivers, the challenges, the triumphs, all culminating in a personal message to those attending.

Our inspirational women in law:

  • Baroness Hale of Richmond – President of the UK Supreme Court 
  • Sonya Branch – General Counsel at the Bank of England 
  • Dame Philippa Whipple DBE – High Court Judge in the Queen’s Bench Division
  • Alison Saunders CB – Partner at Linklaters LLP and former Director of Public Prosecutions
  • HHJ Angela Rafferty QC – Circuit Judge based at the Central Criminal Court
  • Farmida Bi – Partner and Chair at Norton Rose Fulbright LLP
  • Dame Eleanor Laing MP – Deputy Speaker of the House of Commons
  • Baroness Shami Chakrabarti CBE – Shadow Attorney General, former Director of Liberty
  • Karon Monaghan QC – Barrister at Matrix Chambers 
  • Professor Linda Mulcahy – Professor of Socio-Legal Studies at Oxford University 
  • Karyl Nairn QC – Co-head of Skadden’s International Litigation and Arbitration Group

Every penny from ticket sales will directly support the work of JUSTICE. A special discount rate will be available for individual JUSTICE members, and there will be a limited number of concessionary tickets available. Tickets will also be available for a live stream of the event.

We are enormously grateful to Norton Rose Fulbright LLP for hosting us on this very special day.
