Lady Hale joined the law centre as patron in 2010. She was keen to wear a Hammersmith and Fulham Law Centre t-shirt the following year on the London Legal Walk. Since then she has continued to support our work, as well as promote diversity and equality within the legal profession. She stands out as an exceptional judicial figure, she was the first woman to head up Supreme Court and is an inspiration to women and girls everywhere. We are lucky to have her.
