Lord Kerr Competition with @YoungHRLA

The Young Lawyers Committee were delighted to hold the Lord Kerr Competition for the second year running. The essay question was ‘Is there a human right to live free from poverty? Should there be?’

On 4 July, we held an event to celebrate the essay competition and our winners, featuring a panel discussion, prize-giving and an opportunity to network with fellow HRLA members.

The event began with an introduction from Patrick Kerr, whose kind donation in the name of his father makes the essay competition possible. We were reminded of the significant role Lord Kerr played in protecting human rights, and how proud we are to continue his legacy through this essay competition.
