“Into the mix” is a celebration of 40 years of Co-Education at Oxford. As one of the first cohort of Oxford colleges to admit women, Wadham College organised a panel discussion in law which was grandly hosted by Hogan Lovells LLP in London. Susan Bright, Regional Managing Partner for UK and Africa at Hogan Lovells introduced the highly successful panel in a discussion entitled “Women in Law: Rising to the Top”. Kathleen Sullivan, partner of Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan and former Dean of the Stanford Law School chaired the panel. Baroness Hale of Richmond, the only woman who sits on the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom, Alison Saunders, Director of Public Prosecutions and the first DPP to be appointed from within the Crown Prosecution Service and Professor Timothy Endicott, Dean of the Oxford Law Faculty and Professor of Legal Philosophy examined how women have made their mark in the legal sector and how to support and encourage more women into the upper echelons of the profession in the future. Lord Macdonald of River Glaven QC, Warden of Wadham College ended the discussion and invited the gathering of 100 Oxford alumni and friends to a drinks reception, followed by a dinner for the panellists and guests.
