Chrystal Macmillan Prize

Well, I was pleasantly surprised to open the post today and find a letter from Middle Temple enclosing a cheque to me for being awarded the 'Chrystal Macmillan Prize' in 'recognition of [my] acheivements on the BVC'.

A brief research on the internet shows that Chrystal Macmillan was a suffragette and one of the first female barristers, the prize is therefore for women at the Bar. However, more than that, I have been completely unable to find out.

I have e-mailed Christa Richmond back and will update you all as soon as I have more information.

I also have some VERY exciting other news (not related to the Bar at all) but will have to wait for a few days before telling you. . .
