About the event

The UKAJLJ was privileged to hear about women pioneers in the law, from one such pioneer, Ros Wright, barrister and Bencher of the Middle Temple. Ros’ illustrious career, includes serving as an Assistant Director at the DPP’s Office, General Counsel as a financial services regulator and Director of the Serious Fraud Office, whilst like pioneering women others, she maintained a traditional family life. She set the stage for her meticulously researched and eye opening adventure through over a century of women legal pioneers. It was evident that the journey from the first women to enter the profession, through to women being ‘tolerated but not encouraged’ to the present day opportunities female practitioners enjoy, was in great part due to the early strides and the ground-breaking initiative of the compelling women profiled. So many of the stories recounted resonated, in particular, because several in the audience had personal connections to some of the incredible women that featured and certainly there were also many names familiar to the UK Association of Jewish Lawyers and Jurists. Ros’s talk was delivered with wit and clear passion for this great history, and we thank her for an uplifting and inspiring presentation.
