2019 marks centenary of the Sex Disqualification (Removal) Act 1919, which paved the way for women to become lawyers for the first time. It is, therefore, fitting that this year's lecture is entitled "Women's Rights Worldwide" and will be delivered by Baroness Hale of Richmond, the current - and first woman - President of the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom".

The event will be hosted by the Bank of England (in co-operation with the Bank of England's Ethnic Minority and Women in the Bank networks) and is sponsored by CMS. The seminar will be followed by a reception with Lady Hale and the Annual Grotius Dinner 2019 (separate registration is required).
