Lady Hale has today made history in becoming the first ever female President of the Supreme Court.
This marks a momentous occasion for diversity within the judiciary and almost certainly paves the way for more women to take other roles within the judiciary.
Watch her being sworn in.
On Monday 2 October a special ceremony was held for the swearing in of the new President, Deputy President and three new Justices of the UK Supreme Court. This marks the beginning of the new legal year.
