On Thursday 13th February, join Lady Margaret Hall to celebrate 100 years of Women in Law. Professor Helen Scott, LMH Tutor and Fellow in Law, will host a panel discussion with LMH alumni around the theme of “2 out of 12 at 100”.
2019 marks the 100th anniversary of the Sex Disqualification (Removal) Act 1919, which made it possible for women to qualify as barristers or solicitors for the first time. At the end of this year, Lady Hale retires as President of the Supreme Court, leaving just two female justices on the Supreme Court.
The panel will discuss how far we have really come in the past 100 years, and look at what obstacles there might be to further advances in equality in different branches of the profession for future generations.
The event will be held at DLA Piper in London, kindly hosted by LMH alumnus Mark Dwyer (1994 BCL).
