Sixth Form Lecture from Baroness Butler-Sloss

We were delighted to welcome back Wycombe Senior Baroness Butler-Sloss to talk to the Sixth Form as part of the Sixth Form Lecture Series.

With an illustrious legal career: as a family judge for more than 30 years, the president of the high court family division, and the first female Lord Justice of Appeal, she has championed the rights of children and personal autonomy. More recently, she was involved in the independent review of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and it is this aspect that she chose to speak about by posing the question “does slavery still exist?”

Her lecture was focused on her independent review of the Modern Slavery Act, and she enlightened pupils about this significant but often hidden scourge of the modern world.
