Dr Bridget Dolan QC joined over 400 women from all walks of life at the Women of the Year Lunch as a ‘2016 Woman of Achievement’. Each guest is regarded as a ‘Woman of the Year’ and represents not only herself, but the millions of women who make a difference every day.

Bridget’s recognition comes in what has been a year of achievements for her after she was awarded The Lawyer’s “Barrister of the Year” title in 2015 and named in the Sunday Times/Debretts list as one the “500 most influential people in Britain” in 2016.  Earlier this year she took silk, being appointed a QC following her work as counsel to the inquests into the deaths of the seven British residents among the 40 men killed by Al Quaeda linked terrorists at In Amenas in Algeria and the fresh inquest into the death of Pvt. Cheryl James at Deepcut barracks in 1995.
