The Bar Human Rights Committee are delighted to host a special event in Swansea, focusing on opportunities for barristers and students to get involved in BHRC’s international human rights work, followed by a drinks reception sponsored by Angel Chamber, Wales and Chester Circuit and the Hillary Rodham Clinton School of Law.

The event will take place on Thursday 19th April from 5.30 in the Hillary Rodham Clinton School of Law at Swansea University.

Learn more about BHRC’s recent work, including acting as legal observers during the demolition of the “Jungle” camp in Calais, trial observation missions to Turkey and Egypt highlighting systemic failures in due process, mediation work between the government of Colombia and San José de Apartadó Comunidad de Paz, and ground-breaking training on child rights and the rights of IDPs for lawyers, judges, magistrates and social workers in Nigeria.

Join us to discuss ongoing threats to the international rule of law, hear about the work BHRC is doing to confront these issues, and find out how you can get involved. This event should be of interest to anyone concerned about an increasingly fragile international rule of law, and keen to use or develop their international law skills. Membership of the Bar Human Rights Committee is open to law students, barristers and academics.

Our panel of speakers includes BHRC Chairperson Kirsty Brimelow QC of Doughty Street Chambers, Gráinne Mellon of Garden Court Chambers, and Stephen Cragg QC of Doughty Street Chambers.
