EVENT: IALS – Human Rights Lawyering in Europe: A Comparative Analysis of Human Rights Lawyers and Access to Justice in England and Wales and Germany

Posted December 12th, 2013 in Forthcoming events by sally

‘The professional attitude towards promoting national and international justice differs strongly between English and German lawyers: In England and Wales, legal professionals are highly committed to providing free legal assistance to disadvantaged groups while in Germany there is a lack of legal practice of human rights law and defence of those in need. The seminar therefore aims to analyse under which prerequisites legal professionals are able and willing to practice human rights law and support the rights of those in need at domestic and international level from a comparative view.’

Date: 20th January 2014, 6.00-7.30pm

Location: Institute of Advanced Legal Studies, Charles Clore House, 17 Russell Square, London WC1B 5DR
