The Law Society would like to say a big thank you to all of the firms that have already held events as well as those who have yet to hold events as part of Human Rights Week. A huge thank you to everyone who attended, joined the debate and celebrated human rights. Events have ranged from discussions on education in South Africa and the 800th Magna Carta Anniversary, to a film screening of Contagion and the Law Society’s own Annual Human Rights Conference.
The events have received overwhelmingly positive feedback, and have strengthened the Society’s commitment to human rights, and our plans to make the week an annual event.
For those who were unable to attend, podcasts and other materials of some of the events will be available on the Human Rights web page soon.
Finally, a special thank you to Berwin Leighton Paisner, Fiona de Londras:Professor at Durham Law School and Rosa Freedman - Senior Lecturer at Uni of Birmingham who have all been invaluable partners in the success of Human Rights Week.
