ESU Evelyn Wrench Lecture: Baroness Hale of Richmond ‘Getting the Message Across: Communication and Transparency in the UK’

On Tuesday, 10 November at 7.30pm, Baroness Hale of Richmond will give the English-Speaking Union Evelyn Wrench Lecture 2020, on the subject of ‘Getting the Message Across: Communication and Transparency in the UK Supreme Court’ the event, will take place over Zoom.

Lady Hale was the first female Law Lord in the UK Parliament, the first woman to serve on the Supreme Court, and its first female president. A staunch believer in equality (her motto is Omnia Feminae Aequissimae – ‘women are equal to everything’), she has done much to promote the rights of women, children, and those with reduced mental capacity in a legal career stretching back to 1966 when she began teaching law at Manchester University. Last September, she became a household name when she delivered the Supreme Court’s verdict that the Prime Minister’s decision to prorogue parliament was unlawful. She has more recently made waves with her statements that, in regard to the covid emergency laws parliament ‘surrendered control to the government at a crucial time’.

This lecture is part of the English-Speaking Union’s programme of events, celebrating global understanding through dialogue and will support our vital charitable mission of giving young people the speaking and listening skills and cultural understanding they need to thrive.
