Through the Themis Sheroes of the month blog series, we want to highlight the experiences and realities of being a self-identifying woman at the UK Bar and spotlight all the amazing work these sheroes have done.
As our June 2021 Shero, we have interviewed Robin White.
Robin became the first barrister to transition from male to female in practice at the discrimination bar in 2011. She practices in all aspects of employment and discrimination law and lectures regularly on the area, including transgender rights, in which she has appeared in a number of notable cases. She acts for employers and employees and Chambers & Partners has described her as ‘the go to lawyer for trans cases’. She has published ‘A practical guide to transgender law’ in May 2021, written jointly with Nicola Newbegin of Old Square Chambers. In September 2020 Robin was named ‘Barrister of the Week’ by The Lawyer Magazine for her work on the Taylor v Jaguar Land Rover case.
