Dear Member


The Mayflower 400 Lecture
The Rt Hon the Baroness Hale of Richmond DBE


11th November 2021, 5.45 pm – 8.00 pm, University of Plymouth

The Mayflower 400 Lecture is the 27th in a series of lectures, which began with the Pilgrim Fathers Lecture, delivered by Lord Bingham, in 1994. The Lecture which by tradition embodies themes of freedom and human rights, commemorates the voyage of the Mayflower in 1620, which is described by some as one of the most influential journeys in global history and as a defining moment in the relationship between Britain, the USA and the Netherlands.

The Rt Hon the Baroness Hale of Richmond DBE is the latest in a long list of distinguished members of the legal profession to present the lecture. A full speaker biography can be found on the University of Plymouth event website

The lecture, organised by the Plymouth Law Society and hosted by the University of Plymouth and Plymouth City Council, has become a celebrated annual event in the legal profession calendar, attracting current and past Lord Chancellors, Lord Justices of Appeal and Lords of Appeal.
