On Wednesday 2 December BHRC hosted an event as part of the ‘Human Rights in Collaboration’ series in the lead up to International Human Rights Day.

This event was an opportunity to hear more about the work of BHRC, meet barristers on BHRC’s Executive, and find out how to get involved in pro bono international human rights work.

The event was very well attended and led to a range of questions from the audience on the nature and practicalities of undertaking pro bono legal work internationally. Our three speakers were Kirsty Brimelow QC, BHRC Chair and Barrister at Doughty Street Chambers; Zimran Samuel, BHRC Executive member, Barrister at 42 Bedford Row and Fellow at the London School of Economics; Gráinne Mellon, BHRC Executive member, Barrister at Garden Court Chambers and Guest Lecturer in International Human Rights Law at the London School of Economics.
