9 St John Street celebrates 100 years of women in law

9 St John Street Chambers marked the anniversary of the First 100 Years of Women in the Law with a celebratory evening in Chambers on 26/06/19.

Rachel Wedderspoon delivered the opening address to a packed audience with exerts from the speech of Baroness Hale to Kings College London 20/3/19 'Bertha Cave to Brenda Hale'. 

Keynote speeches followed from three inspirational women, all of whom had unrivalled success in the law; Dame Janet Smith, Dame Caroline Swift and Ms J. Darbyshire. The unifying message from all - progress has been made, it will continue, and let us celebrate how far we’ve come and look to the bright future ahead. 

Guests were then treated to champagne and canapes. There was a collective sense of empowerment as female lawyers from across the legal system shared experiences with each other, and also gave advice to local school pupils from St Peter’s and Trinity High as well as students from Xaverian College and Manchester Metropolitan University some of whom may prove to be the next generation of Women in Law.

Omnia Feminae Aequissimae - Women are equal to everything.
