The Inspirational Women of Law conference and exhibition honoured 13 women lawyers by hanging their portraits in a special exhibition in the Hatton Gallery, before making them a permanent exhibition in Newcastle University law School to encourage women to pursue careers in Law.

Those chosen included Baronesses Hale, Scotland and Lawrence, Vera Baird QC, and Pragna Patel of Southall Black Sisters. Our own Cris McCurley in her own words was also included and felt¬†“surprised and honoured” to be amongst such great company.

Cris’s speech can be viewed here:

We were able to record some of the  other speeches (which were all excellent) and hope to be able share them shortly.
