Events

These are free or subsidised for HRLA members. Events may be part of a themed series of seminars or one-off sessions on particular issues. HRLA events provide an opportunity to explore topical developments that affect the development of human rights law in the UK. This may be a judgment of the House of Lords or the European Court of Human Rights or developing Government policy. All HRLA events provide a forum for constructive discussion and debate. Interaction is encouraged. Where appropriate, we also promote human rights events of other organisations.

“It was fantastic yesterday to join friends and human rights luminaries to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, 70 years since the European Convention on Human Rights came into force, 25 years of the UK Human Rights Act, and the 20th birthday of the Human Rights Lawyers Association. The collection of contributions in the HRLA’s commemorative booklet provides still further food for thought, causes for concern, and reasons for hope. I’ve shared Cherie Blair CBE (Cherie Booth K.C.)’s here, but there are 28 more to provoke and inspire – I will add a link in the comments when the full set is available online.” View Adam Smith-Anthony’s profile Thanks to Sophie Kemp our friends at Kingsley Napley for hosting!
