EVENT: Birkbeck – Judicial Conversation with Hilary Heilbron QC

Posted January 21st, 2016 in Forthcoming events by sally

‘Ruth Herz will talk to Hilary Heilbron about her mother, Dame Rose Heilbron, a world famous icon of the 1950s and 1960s. Hilary’s biography charts her mother’s successful legal career, and how as a working wife and mother, she navigated her way to an isolated position of female seniority in a stoically masculine field. Rose Heilbron was the first woman Judge in England in 1956, the first woman judge to sit at the Old Bailey, and the second woman to be appointed a High Court judge. ‘
