Foreword to the Special Issue: Women in Law and Criminal Justice: Quo Vadis?
AbstractIt is my esteemed pleasure to welcome the Special Issue of the Wolverhampton Law Journal (WLJ), which has been prepared in celebration of Women in Law and Criminal Justice. At the start of 2019, the celebrations of the centenary of the Sex Disqualification (Removal) Act 1919 began. In April, Wolverhampton Law School hosted the Artwork celebrating the First 100 Years of women in law which has also featured at the Supreme Court and the Royal Courts of Justice. At the same time the Law School organised a PhD Conference under the same theme, where PhD researchers from the West Midlands Legal Doctoral Network shared their findings about the women who have most influenced their areas of the law. In October, the Law Research Centre organised the First 100 Years Colloquium, the report of which is referenced below. In order to continue the celebrations, and with the Law Research Centre’s home journal, we found the unique opportunity to publish select contributions on this theme in this Special Issue.
