Dame Elizabeth is well known to members of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators as the Patron of the London Branch. After education at Roedean School and Girton College, Cambridge, Dame Elizabeth was called to the Bar at Inner Temple in 1971, where she became a Bencher in 1992. In 1989 she became a Queen’s Counsel, and in 2004 she was appointed a High Court Judge, assigned to the Queen’s Bench Division. From 2010 to 2012 she was the Judge in charge of the Commercial Court. She is Vice-President of the Civil Division of the Court of Appeal of England and Wales.

As well as being the United Kingdom Advocate General at the European Court of Justice, and then a Lord of Appeal in Ordinary, Gordon Slynn, Baron Slynn of Hadley, was the first President of the Solicitors’ Association of Higher Court Advocates (“S.A.H.C.A.”).

The London Branch is pleased to have been invited by the Solicitors’ Association of Higher Court Advocates, to hear our Patron share her views on this topic.

Following the seminar, which will conclude at around 7 p.m., S.A.H.C.A. is generously hosting a reception for the speaker and all attendees. There is no charge to attend this seminar but, in view of capacity limitations and RCJ after-hours security considerations, attendees MUST please register in advance with Elinor Pritchard at elinor@thevirtualpartnership.co.uk. The event will carry 1.5 CPD.
