The Association of Women Solicitors (London) is delighted at the announcement of the appointment of Solicitor and Employment lawyer Camilla Palmer as an honorary QC following nomination by Association of Women Solicitors (London).
Camilla Palmer QC said ” I was flattered to be nominated for an Hon QC by the Assocation of Women Solicitors and delighted to be appointed for my employment and equality work. In my time as a solicitor we have made great progress in strengthening the law on discrimination and maternity rights. But, it is clear that we need to ensure there is real equality for women lawyers. A good start would be reaching a target of 50% of partners being women and 50% of judges – at all levels. There is no excuse for anything less. We clearly have a long way to go.”
Association of Women Solicitors (London) Chairwoman Margaret Hatwood said “Camilla is an excellent lawyer and role model for women solicitors as well as an active member of our committee. We were therefore delighted to nominate her for recognition for her work in the Equality & Diversity sector.”
