The best careers event of the year for budding human rights lawyers is back – and it’s bigger than ever before! This year, the careers events will span a whole week and will be held online (platform to be confirmed) so that as many people as possible can attend. It’s not to be missed – you can sign up now either for the whole week or for any of the individual sessions which take your fancy!

Careers Week is aimed primarily at university students, recent graduates and those just starting out on a career in human rights law. Our sessions will address pathways to a career in human rights law, accessibility and diversity in the profession and current topical issues, including lessons from the COVID-19 pandemic, how to be a campaigning human rights lawyer and working in a profession under threat.

Careers Week will launch with a keynote speech from Adam Wagner on Monday 18 October 2021 (7pm), which will cover his own pathway to a career in human rights law, some of his ground-breaking work during the COVID-19 pandemic and his tips for aspiring human rights lawyers. Like all of our sessions, Adam’s speech will be followed by a Q&A session.

You can read an introduction to Adam Wagner here.

The full timetable of events can be found on the flyer below. Don’t miss out – and please share this page so your friends don’t miss out either!
