The Inspirational Women of the Law Event 2019
(following the successful portrait exhibition and events in 2015 and 2017) celebrates the centenary anniversary of women’s entry into the legal profession. As well as a short talk on the Women’s Legal Landmarks project by Professor Erika Rackley and Professor Rosemary Auchmuty, the event will feature six iconic and inspirational women talking about their lives and careers working in and with the law to secure social justice and protect human rights…

We want to inspire the next generation of women to study law, to practise law, to become law-makers and judges, and to recognise the power of the law to achieve social justice.”
