To mark International Women’s day (8th March) and International Women Judges’ day (10th March), the School of Law and Social Justice is hosting an event to celebrate women judges who do such important work in our first tier courts and tribunals.

The event will involve a panel of 4 women judges working in different areas of law. Following short introductory presentations from the panellists, members of the audience will be invited to ask questions around issues such as career pathways to the judiciary, equality and diversity in the judiciary, and access to justice.

Wendy Beetlestone - former graduate of the University of Liverpool, recently appointed as Chancellor of the University of Liverpool and US district judge for the Easter District of Pennsylvania – will give a short welcome via film.

The Panel:
Karen Doyle
Kate Meredith-Jones
Frances Meyler
Deborah Tyfield
