First female Supreme Court President appointed


FBC Manby Bowdler would like to congratulate Lady Hale on her upcoming appointment as President of the Supreme Court. Lady Hale, a long time campaigner for equality within the legal system, is to be the first woman appointed to the role.

Harbinder Gosal, from the firm's family team, welcomed the news, saying Lady Hale was a fantastic role model for female lawyers.

"The judiciary can often be seen as being male-dominated and since her appointment to the Supreme Court in 2009, Lady Hale has consistently demonstrated her expert legal mind ruling on some of the country's most complex cases."

"Lady Hale's background is in family law and social welfare, and as a family solicitor myself, I'm particularly pleased to see our branch of law represented at the highest level in this way."
