Our Women in Law
This year our #UoBWomeninLaw series will focus on women in law, our women in law, and celebrating the achievements of academics, alumni, students and others that have supported the growth of the school.
We are very fortunate to be supported by a number of high profile women, from Shami Chakrabarti, barrister, Shadow Attorney General and former Director of human rights group Liberty, through Lady Hale, first female President of the Supreme Court to our very own Head of School - a leader in the field of gender law. Find out more about some of our inspirational women in law.
Explore the stories of some of our inspiring students past and present, from Q&A’s with current students and successful recent graduates embarking on their law careers to articles about alumna influencing international policy.
2017 saw the launch of the new Bristol Law School Women’s Network (BLSWN) set up by the members of the Law School Advisory Board (LSAB), law alumna and partner at Sackers, Georgina Jones, and MD for the General Counsel for Europe at Greenhill & Co, Naomi Buffery. Find out more about how you can get involved.
Set up in January 2018 by Dr Katie Cruz and Jassi Sandhar, the Gender and Feminism Reading Group is open to all University staff and students interested in furthering their reading and discussing selected texts. The theme-based sessions include Black Feminism and critical race theory, Queer theory and sexuality, Intersectionality and Representation and Recognition.
