To celebrate the centenary of the Sex Disqualification (Removal) Act 1919, First 100 Years have been holding a centenary party each month of 2019, hosted by a different organisation each time, covering one decade of the last 100 years. August marks the decade of the 1980s, which saw women ‘Rising to the Top’ of the legal profession: the first female partner at a city law firm, the first woman appointed to the Law Commission, the first female Treasurer of an Inn of Court, the first woman appointed to the Court of Appeal and also the first female Prime Minister of the United Kingdom.
In order celebrate not only the summer but also the achievements of women lawyers in the 1980s, AWS London are pleased to have joined forced with First 100 Years for this year’s summer party. We are also thrilled to welcome Dorothy Livingston, first female partner of Herbert Smith Freehills, who will be saying a few words of welcome at the event.
Please do, therefore, join us for drinks and nibbles at the offices of Russell-Cooke Solicitors, who are kindly hosting this year’s event.
The event is free for fully paid up members and £10 for non-members. We would also encourage you to donate to the First 100 Years project HERE.
