The Hearing: Episode 69 – Lady Hale

Join Yasmin Skeikh, fresh from our short Christmas hiatus, as she gets to know Lady Hale–often described as the UK’s answer to the USA’s late, great Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Former President of the Supreme Court and an advocate for diversity in the legal profession, Baroness Hale of Richmond (as she’s formally known) can leave people rather starstruck. And Yasmin is no exception.

Lady Hale chats to Yasmin about the impact teachers can have on the lives their pupils, and what it’s like being famous for so many firsts. The pair also discuss that headline-grabbing prorogation case, as well as some of the other landmark judgments that she is particularly proud of.
