Named after the legendary legal pioneer Dame Rose Heilbron QC, our new lecture series aims to champion female experts in the legal profession by giving them a platform to deliver thought-provoking lectures that shape the debate on topical legal issues. We also hope to thereby counter the often male-dominated lecture circuit.

Each year will focus on a different theme, with 2020’s theme being ‘freedom’.

We are honoured that the inaugural lecture, being held on Tuesday 1 December, will be delivered by leading human rights barrister Kirsty Brimelow QC of Doughty Street Chambers. Kirsty’s lecture is titled ‘Love, Law and Government’ and will reflect on the response to Covid-19 and what it means for individual human rights, the common good and ultimately what future lies ahead for British society.
