Lady Hale will become the first female Law Lord
Dame Brenda Hale, 58, (a Lady Justice of Appeal since 1999) will become one of 12 Lord Laws.

Although known as Law Lords, Dame Brenda will be known as Lady Hale.

She will earn £175,055-a-year when she starts in January.

The most senior female judge in England and Wales was Dame Elizabeth Butler-Sloss, president of the High Court’s Family Division.

The House of Lords still remains unrepresentative Dame Brenda will be the only woman among the twelve top judges and there are no black or minority ethnic judges.
