[SAVE THE DATE] The Mayflower 400 Lecture
  • Lecture Theatre 1, Roland Levinsky Building, University of Plymouth

Save event
The Mayflower 400 Lecture is the 27th in a series of lectures that began with the first Pilgrim Fathers Lecture delivered by Lord Bingham in 1994.
The lecture, which by tradition embodies themes of freedom and human rights, commemorates the voyage of the Mayflower in 1620 which is described by some as one of the most influential journeys in global history and as a defining moment in the relationship between Britain, the USA and the Netherlands.
In a long list of distinguished members of the legal profession to present the lecture, we are delighted to announce The Rt Hon the Baroness Hale of Richmond DBE will be returning for the second time after previously delivering a very successful and well received talk in 2003.
Registration is from 17:00 followed by networking, a drinks reception and a fantastic opportunity for law students to engage with The Rt Hon the Baroness Hale of Richmond DBE prior to the lecture starting at around 18:30.
The lecture, organised by the Plymouth Law Society and hosted by the University of Plymouth and Plymouth City Council, has become a celebrated annual event in the legal profession calendar, attracting current and past Lord Chancellors, Lord Justices of Appeal and Lords of Appeal.

Speaker biography

The Rt Hon the Baroness Hale of Richmond DBE retired as President of the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom, our most senior judge, in January 2020.
 
After teaching law at the University of Manchester for 18 years (while also practising for a short time at the Manchester Bar), then promoting the reform of the law at the Law Commission for over nine years, she became a Judge in the Family Division of the High Court of England and Wales in 1994. In 1999 she was promoted to the Court of Appeal and in 2004 became the first and only woman ‘Law Lord’ – that is, a member of the appellate committee of the House of Lords. In 2009, the Law Lords became the Justices of the Supreme Court, and she became its first woman Justice, Deputy President in 2013 and President in 2017. She is also President of the United Kingdom Association of Women Judges and a past President of the International Association of Women Judges. 
She has enjoyed working in all fields of the law, but her principal interests remain in family, welfare and equality law.
