The BPP Human Rights Unit and the Bar Human Rights Committee are hosting a special event at BPP Holborn, focusing on opportunities for barristers and students to get involved in BHRC’s international human rights work.

Learn more about BHRC’s recent work included 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 internally displaced persons for lawyers, judges, magistrates and social workers in Nigeria.

Join BHRC Executive Committee members 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.

This invitation is extended to all barristers, legal academics and legal students (including trainees and pupils) who might be interested in attending: please feel free to share the event details widely with your networks.
