The event will begin with a welcome from Principal Helen King and the premiere of a video featuring Baroness Ruth Deech, former Principal of the college. The video was created as part of the First 100 Years project which aims to ensure a strong and equal future for all women in the legal profession.

There will then be a panel discussion, featuring three St Anne’s alumnae, which will aim to tackle the question of what has been achieved in Women’s equality in the profession, and what is left to be done?

Panellists include;

• Rami Royle (nee Kaur), Senior Associate, Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer LLP
• Professor Jo Delahunty QC, Barrister
• Hannah Street, studying for the LPC, joining Skadden Arps as a trainee solicitor in August 2020

Following the panel debate there will be the opportunity to enjoy afternoon tea and hear about some of the latest Law research taking place at St Anne’s. Talks will include Eirini E. Fasia DPhil Candidate (Oxford) speaking on her research into the international law of the sea, environmental law and state responsibility.

The event will finish with a three course dinner which will be a wonderful opportunity to catch up with old friends and make new acquaintances.
