Ropewalk Chambers was delighted to host a celebration of 100 years of women in the law on 9th May.

Nottinghamshire Law Society and the Midland Circuit Women’s Forum came together to mark 100 years since the Sex Disqualification (Removal) Act was passed, which paved the way for women to finally practise law.

Keynote speakers included Her Honour Judge Alison Hampton, Laura Pinkney, Jason Waghorne and Jayne Adams QC.

The event was a great success and we look forward to the next 100 years.
