At ABC Chambers Solutions we pride ourselves on promoting a diverse range of individuals into careers in chambers. This includes many talented women.
As yesterday was International Women’s Day we would like to remember the late Dame Rose Heilbron DBE QC. A first-class woman, her career included many ‘’firsts” for a woman. She was the first woman to win a scholarship to Gray’s Inn, the first woman judge to sit at the Central Criminal Court, one of the first two women to be appointed King’s Counsel in England, the first woman Recorder, the first woman to lead in a murder case, and the first woman Treasurer of Gray’s Inn.
