Women's Forum

Celebrating Women at the Bar: Past, Present and Future

Wednesday 15 March 2017

It is nearly 100 years since the Sex Disqualification (removal) Act enabled women to have careers at the bar and in 2023 it will be 100 years since the first women were called to the Bar at Lincoln's Inn. Join us on the 15 March 2017 for a lecture and forum celebrating what women have achieved and the support networks available so that we can make the future the present.  The Forum will be followed by a drinks Reception.
