Grace Ononiwu CBE

The law court building at the University of Hertfordshire has been renamed in honour of Grace Ononiwu CBE, a Director of Legal Services at the Crown Prosecution Service and former NBCPA chair.

Grace graduated with a BA (Hons) Law from the University of Hertfordshire in 1988 and qualified as a solicitor in 1991.

In April 2005, she became the first African Caribbean Chief Crown Prosecutor (CCP) in CPS history.

In June 2014, she became the first woman and African Caribbean to hold the CCP position in the West Midlands. She was previously CCP of East of England.

“Grace is living history,” said NBCPA chair Grace Moronfolu MBE. “Her career has grown from strength to strength, and she is an incredible senior role model and inclusion trailblazer who deserves this wonderful tribute. Congratulations, Grace; we are extremely proud of you.”
