We are delighted to support Hay Festival 2022 with three inspiring events featuring Fellows of the British Academy.

Lady Hale Hon FBA is the first woman to have been appointed to the Supreme Court and the youngest and first Commissioner to be selected for the Law Commission. Famed for her insect brooches and dubbed the ‘Beyoncé of the legal world’ for her pioneering reputation among students and young lawyers, she presents her memoir of a bold, glass-ceiling-breaking woman.

She talks to Helena Kennedy Hon FBA, one of Britain's most distinguished lawyers who has spent her professional life giving a voice to those with the least power within the system, defending civil liberties and promoting human rights.

Booking required: £12
