Stop Press – Opening Speaker W2D2023 Legal Translation and Risk

I am delighted to reveal that our Opening Speaker for the WordstoDeeds Conference 2023, Legal Translation and Risk, is the Right Honourable the Baroness Hale of Richmond DBE.

Lady Hale retired as President of the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom, the most senior Judge in the United Kingdom, in January 2020. Before becoming a Judge, she had a varied career, as an academic lawyer at the University of Manchester (also qualifying and practising for a while as a barrister in Manchester), as the first woman member of the Law Commission, where she led successful projects in Family Law and Mental Capacity Law.

She was appointed a High Court Judge in 1994, was promoted to the Court of Appeal in 1999, and in 2004 became the first and only woman ‘Law Lord’ in the House of Lords, then the apex court in the United Kingdom. In 2009, the Law Lords were translated into the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom. She became its Deputy President in 2013 and its first woman President in 2017. In retirement she has spent her time in good works, events and writing – her memoir, Spiderwoman, A Life, was published in 2021. She is an honorary professor at UCL.  

We still have a few places left for the conference. To register, go to the conference website, where the full programme is available, as well as the bios of all speakers, and many participant bios too.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to talk about the pressing issues in legal translation, – especially the hot topic of risk – as well as fair trials, legal tech, due diligence, and more.
