UCL Laws appoints Baroness Hale, former President of the Supreme Court, as new Honorary Professor
UCL Faculty of Laws is delighted to announce the appointment of Baroness Hale of Richmond, former President of the Supreme Court, as an Honorary Professor.
In her new role at UCL Laws, Lady Hale will play a part in research, teaching, and public engagement, with a particular focus on her areas of interest, which include women’s rights, access to justice and the rule of law.
Speaking about her new appointment, Lady Hale comments, “I am delighted to be re-joining the academic world as a honorary Professor at UCL. UCL Laws is a ground-breaker in its work on the judiciary and the judicial system and I hope to be able to make a real contribution to that – and one which will have a real impact upon the everyday lives of real people.”
Meanwhile, Dean of UCL Laws, Professor Piet Eeckhout, enthuses, “Lady Hale’s decision to accept our offer of a honorary professorship is very exciting news for the university. She has been a leader at the top level of the UK legal system and a strong proponent of the values of justice, fairness and equality for which the law stands – and which are at the heart of UCL’s foundational ethos. She has been an exemplary President of the Supreme Court: articulate, determined, fair, and collegiate. Our students and staff will benefit from all of this experience and are extremely excited to have such an inspirational role model in our midst.”
Lady Hale has a long-standing relationship with UCL Laws, having been on UCL’s Judicial Institute Advisory Board since it was established in 2010, as well as being a regular speaker in the Law Faculty’s Moot Court and officially re-opening Bentham House, a Grade II listed building and home of UCL Laws in June 2018. She was appointed President of the Supreme Court in September 2017 and has recently marked her upcoming retirement from the Supreme Court with a special valedictory ceremony.
