Event description

Description

Helena Kennedy QC practises predominantly in the criminal law and has acted in many of the prominent cases of the last decade including the Brighton Bombing Trial, Guildford Four Appeal and a number of key domestic violence cases. She has been a prominent critic of the ways in which the justice system treats women. In 1992 she wrote the seminal Eve Was Framed followed in 2018 by Eve Was Shamed, exposing pressing evidence of women’s continued discrimination throughout the legal system.


About the Women in Legal Practice series

The Dickson Poon School of Law has created a series of four lectures to celebrate 100 years of women being allowed to enter the legal profession.

Alongside these celebrations the Dickson Poon School of Law has launched a widening participation project, working with Colleges of Further Education in London, to encourage applications from mature students to universities in the Russell Group and, in particular, to increase the numbers recruited to study law at King’s.

Our centenary lectures will work to highlight the importance of women’s contribution to law and the legal profession and will promote the King's College London Strategic Vision, which places knowledge at the heart of all our activities.
