First 100 Years of Women in Law
On Thursday 14th November 2019, an exhibition celebrating the First 100 Years of Women in Law was launched at the University of Liverpool's School of the Arts Library and featured speeches by Professor Debra Morris, Dean of the School of Law and Social Justice, and Chris Topping, President of the Liverpool Law Society.
Following the successful launch event, the exhibition of 10 banners which marks each decade, from 1919-29 up to 2010-19, has relocated to the foyer of the Eleanor Rathbone Building where it will be on display for the next two weeks (open Monday - Friday, 9am-5pm until 29th November 2019).
