Shamshad Iqbal wins top award and Umme Imam honoured

On the eve of International Women’s Day Ben Hoare Bell solicitors were so happy to attend the IKWRO True Honour awards in London, having nominated Shamshad for an award in recognition of the amazing work she has done for literally decades to advocate for women and children who are victims of abuse. We knew she was going to win one of the awards, but she actually won the top award of the night as the Judges declared that they had been deeply impressed by the testimonials that they had received. Ben Hoare Bell share our congratulations to Shamshad with all individuals and organisations working to support women.

At Newcastle University Law school on 15.3.19, the 3rd Biannual Inspirational Women of Law event was held. In the opening remarks, Shamshad’s photo was screened and her award announced to great applause.

Umme Imam honoured

Newcastle University has also honoured Angelou Centre director Umme Imam with an Honorary Doctorate in Law which she will be presented with later in the year.
