Iconic Scottish Women in Law – Lady Dorrian

The Ashurst Women’s Network, in collaboration with First 100 years, are continuing with the series of short biographical films featuring pioneering women in Scottish law.

On Monday 7th December, you can join for the second short film featuring Lady Dorrian, Lord Justice Clerk of Scotland. As the current Lord Justice Clerk, Lady Dorrian holds the second most senior judicial post in Scotland. Her appointment in 2016 made history as it was the first time a woman had reached such heights in the Scottish legal system.

This is a fantastic opportunity to learn more about Lady Dorrian’s career as well as increase awareness of gender equality in the law and promote the luminaries who made an impact on Scottish legal history. We are looking forward to seeing you at our virtual film premiere.

If you would like to submit questions or would like us to discuss anything in particular on the webinar, you can send these to anna.surma@ashurst.com

2020 in 10 playlists: the sounds of a year we’ll never forget

Britain entered 2020 anticipating the usual: work, weddings, summer holidays. Crazy nights out. Cozy nights in. Hugs.

Instead we got a pandemic and embraced new interests to offset the anxiety and ennui. We found solace in silence and long-distance socialising, meeting up with friends over Zoom and filling our schedules with quiz after quiz. It was also a year of political awakening: Black Lives Matter protests, now in their seventh year, grew into global mass movements as thousands risked their health to stand against racism and police brutality.

All these new ways of living and thinking required soundtracks. Enter Spotify, whose playlists have helped millions across the world through this tumultuous year. Here are 10 playlists that tell the story of 2020.
