Baroness Brenda Hale is renowned for her groundbreaking contributions to the British judiciary. As the first woman appointed to the Law Commission, she spearheaded pivotal legal reforms. Her ascendancy continued as she became the first female Law Lord, and in 2017 was appointed as the inaugural female President of the Supreme Court. 

Baroness Hale's impact extends beyond her historic appointments; she is celebrated for her scholarly contributions to family and social welfare law. Known for her sharp intellect, unwavering commitment to justice and advocacy for gender equality in the legal profession, Baroness Hale's legacy resonates far beyond the courtroom. 

Carl Stychin, Director of the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies and Professor of Law in the School of Advanced Study, University of London, is hosting the discussion.
