Celebrating the First 100 Years

Bar Council

1 min read Member content

The First 100 Years is a ground-breaking history project, supported by the Law Society, Bar Council and CILEx, charting the journey of women in law since 1919. 


The project is powered by Spark21 , a charity founded to celebrate, inform and inspire future generation of women in the profession.

This year, the project will mark the centenary of the Sex Disqualification (Removal) Act 1919 which paved the way for women to become lawyers for the first time.

The project is creating a digital museum made up of 100 videos that tell the story of women in law, as well as an exhibition that is touring Universities and organisations across the country, which is also able to be printed and displayed for free from the website. The project's legacy will be the creation for the first time of positive role models for women in law, a deep understanding of the past combined with a celebration of today, a cross-sector platform for intelligent debate and change and a valuable archive accessible to everyone from law students to High Court Judges.
