Cherie Booth QC, speaker for Lecture

October 2011

The lecture, in memory of Mr Levy’s uncle Sir Joshua Hassan, the longest serving Chief Minister of Gibraltar and founder of the firm, will be delivered by Cherie Booth QC on the 24th November 2011 at the Rock Hotel.

Cherie is a leading barrister and committed campaigner for women’s equality. She is the founder and patron of the Cherie Blair Foundation for Women, a charity that provides integrated business development support for women entrepreneurs in developing and transition countries.  In 2007, she was awarded the Eleanor Roosevelt Val-Kill medal in recognition of her high ideals and courageous actions and in 2011 the Commonwealth Award for her humanitarian work. 

Mrs Booth, also know as Cherie Blair, studied law at the London School of Economics and was called to the Bar in 1976. Her fellow trainee at her first chambers was Tony Blair, former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, who was to become her husband. The couple married in 1980 and have four children. She became a Queens Counsel in 1995 and sits as a part-time judge and is also an accredited mediator and international arbitrator.  She is a founder of the ground breaking legal practice, Matrix Chambers where she practises in a wide range of administrative, commercial and employment cases in the UK, EU and internationally. She recently co-founded the Africa Justice Foundation, which aims to strengthen the legal capacity of governments in Africa, and is an active campaigner on equality and human rights issues.

Mr Levy said “it is a great honour to have someone of Mrs Booth’s calibre join us on this memorable evening to recognise and honour Sir Joshua. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank her for making the trip and look forward to her stay in Gibraltar being a pleasant and memorable one.”

    When we talk about Gibraltar and the EU perspective, we really are talking about a defining element of what has been driving Gibraltar over the last twenty-five or thirty years. Our membership of the European Union is not something that has been incidental and has not had a dramatic impact on Gibraltar; it has been very important in the direction that Gibraltar has taken over that period of time. Gibraltar - as you know - is attached to Southern Spain. Gibraltar and its position in the European Union is quite a fascinating study and a fascinating situation to explain.

    An event the size of the Olympics will always court some controversy as it gets underway, but few were expecting that empty seats would be top of the list. However, as the Games got started and the television pictures showed thousands of empty seats, so the recriminations began.
