March Madness Afternoon Tea at The Assembly House

March 13 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Join us on Wednesday 13th for “March Madness”. This month we are planning something a little different, serving Afternoon Tea at The Assembly House, still starting at our usual time of 12pm.

We look forward to welcoming back Jeanette Wheeler as our speaker who will present to us on “The history of women in the law”. 2019 marks the 100th anniversary of the Sex Disqualification (Removal) Act 1919, which made it possible for women to qualify as barristers or solicitors for the first time

Jeanette joined Birketts from Eversheds in 2007. She is a Partner and heads up Birketts’ Employment team across all four offices. Jeanette is also a member of Birketts’ Management Board and a Director of the New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership Board. She also sits on the Norwich area chamber Council. She has previously held the post of Chair of the Norwich Business Women’s Network and from 2013 to 2015 Jeanette was President of the Norfolk and Norwich Law Society.
