The annual HUMAN RIGHTS LAW CONFERENCE provides delegates with a comprehensive and expert review of the key developments in human rights over the last 12 months.


Following the general election, Human Rights is once again a headline topic with the new government suggesting long reaching reforms. There have been significant case law developments throughout 2015 and their implications are extensive for human rights professionals. Developments across criminal law, equality duties, immigration and asylum, judicial review, and defamation and freedom of expression have had, and will continue to have, an impact on wider human rights laws, policies, and case law developments.

 

The 17th annual conference will examine a broad range of topical human rights issues, and key legal experts will interpret and discuss recent case law and legislativedevelopments. Delegates will receive practical examples, tools and strategies to overcome inherent issues and challenges and prepare them for what to expect in the year ahead.
