Lawyer in city trib­ute

The Sunday Post (Newcastle) - - NEWS -

Hu­man rights lawyer He­lena Kennedy has told how her ca­reer was in­spired by grow­ing up in Glas­gow ten­e­ments.

At the age of eight, she watched her mum help a vic­tim of do­mes­tic vi­o­lence be­fore she went on to be­come a tire­less women’s rights cam­paigner.

The Labour peer said: “When I look back, my par­ents have in­formed my way of see­ing law.

“Cer­tainly, I’m a child of the Glas­gow ten­e­ments with strong class pol­i­tics and I have never for­got­ten that.”
