JUSTICE will be holding a unique fundraising event on 7th June 2019 at Allen & Overy LLP to celebrate 100 years of women in the law in the UK.

The conference will see a panel of eleven incredible women join Lady Hale in sharing their stories of lives in the law – speaking frankly about what has worked and what hasn’t, the drivers, the challenges, the triumphs, all culminating in a personal message to those attending. .
