  • Claimant – R (Miller) v Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union
  • Claimant – R (Miller) v The Prime Minister

The 5 Big Questions:

    1. How do you measure the impact of what you do?
    2. How should people/businesses be preparing for the future?
    3. How do we build the workforce we need for that future?
    4. How do you use creativity to solve problems?
    5. How do you collaborate?

Key quotes:

“It took me thirty years to pop up from nowhere.”

“We got a little bit lazy and comfortable. It’s a terrible thing to say to people: we forgot to look out for each-other. We sort of got quite comfortable, enjoying all the capitalist freedoms we had and also the things, the gadgets. We started thinking about things, rather than people.” 

“I do think we are capable of coming out of this better than we went into it.”

“My successes didn’t lead to Parliamentarians standing up and doing their job, in my view. After the second case, the prorogation case, the next day it was like a fish market! Having gone through everything to defend them, it was extremely frustrating.”

“If you look at our educational curriculum, I personally don’t think it’s fit for the future.”

“If we lose creativity then we become an imprisoned society.”

“I’m very mindful as a woman of colour that there aren’t many role-models out there. In the City and in the legal profession, we don’t have parity yet.”
