Equal to Everything: Judge Brenda and the Supreme Court (Hardback)

Usually despatched within 2 days.


Equal to Everything is a beautifully illustrated, fictionalised tale based on the life of Lady Hale, President of the Supreme Court of England and Wales.

It tells the story of Ama, a girl from Richmond in Yorkshire, who visits the Supreme Court on a school trip and learns all about the work of the court and how another little girl from her town went on to become its president. Throughout the story we learn about Brenda Hale's life - from school to university and on to becoming the most important judge in the land.

The story highlights some interesting cases Judge Brenda was faced with and explains how judges make difficult decisions and teaches children about fairness, justice and how the law can be used for good and to protect us all.

Equal to Everything is an inspiring story of a little girl who worked hard at school and went on to be extraordinary. It aims to empower children to believe they can achieve their dreams and never letting other people tell them they are not good enough.

Customer Reviews

A CHARMING AND ASPIRING TALE FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS An appreciation by Elizabeth Robson Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers and Phillip Taylor MBE, Head of Chambers, Reviews Editor, “The Barrister”, and Mediator In an unusual departure from the normal publications LAG are renowned for producing, “Equal to Everything” is a most welcome new work which will appeal to all ages. “Judge Brenda”, or Lady Hale as she is more formally known, recounts, through the authors Afua Hirsch and Henny Beaumont, a positive and highly personal vignette of her journey from Yorkshire to the highest judicial appointment in the land, President of the UK Supreme Court. The simple story line concerns Ama and her friends from Richmond in Yorkshire who, on a school trip, visit the Supreme Court in London. The importance of the tale is that “they discover how another little girl (Judge Brenda) from their own town went on to become its president! In fundamental storytelling, the children learn about interesting cases, how judges decide what is fair and equal and why it is important to have laws to protect everyone. Therefore, we feel it is a story which covers all ages including those whose first language is not English and it is genuinely inspiring. Ama’s story is beautifully illustrated as well. is an inspiring story of a little girl who worked hard at school and went on to be “extraordinary” because the tale aims to empower children to believe they can achieve their dreams and never letting other people tell them they are not good enough -something many of us fought against ourselves many years ago, especially at the Bar. From the school trip, we learn about Brenda Hale’s life - from school to university and one to becoming the most important judge in the land. It is special thanks that must be given to Lady Hale for undertaking to support what the Legal Action Group have publishing as a surprisingly success title for the end of 2019. It goes well with the teddy bears which the UK Supreme Court found so popular when they first appeared! The Legal Action Group also thank the Sigrid Rausing Trust and “our friends and supporters” for funding the funding the publication. They continue by saying that “we are incredibly grateful to Brenda Hale for her support and encouragement and for giving her time so willingly during the production of this book”. They also thank Roxy Lang who came up with the idea for the book. The hardback edition of this book was originally published by LAG on 10th October 2019.
