Human Rights

Domestic law reform

The domestic law reform work program focuses solely on the UK’s domestic legislative and administrative human rights regime, and particularly to facilitating member input to the policy development and law making process.

Examples include lobbying against Secret Court proposals under the Security and Justice Bill, campaigning for the retention of the Human Rights Act and promoting compliance with the European court of Human Rights.

Justice for all


Recent examples include responding to the open call for information on the Longer-term future of the system of the European Convention on Human Rights and the European Court of Human Rights, the Modern Slavery Bill and responding to the MoJ’s call for evidence on Fundamental Rights.

We have also being working on business and human rights with a practitioners’ advisory group. The recommendations from the group were published earlier this year. This work is ongoing.
