This conference, organised by JUSTICE (the British section of the International Commission of Jurists) will be held in London on 17 October 2003. In one highly practical day, the speakers assess recent UK case law and legislative developments, guide delegates through the impact on each area of law, and look ahead to likely developments over the next twelve months.
This year’s conference takes place on Friday 17 October 2003 at Church House, Dean’s Yard, Westminster, London SW1.
The Human Rights Act continues to have a profound impact on the UK legal landscape. Policy-makers, practitioners and academics need an opportunity to review the latest developments in law and practice and to consider the challenges that lie ahead. The Annual JUSTICE/Sweet & Maxwell Human Rights Law conference has established itself as the premier forum for examining case law and legislative developments across a broad range of practice areas.
The conference brings together the country’s leading experts in human rights law. Plenary sessions will consider UK law in the context of changing circumstances internationally and political pressures at home. Specialist interactive workshops will allow in-depth analysis and discussion, covering:
- Criminal law
- Discrimination and employment
- Judicial review
- Prisoners’ rights
- Remedies in EU law
Whatever your particular area of interest, this conference is an essential means of ensuring you are fully up-to-date with the latest developments in human rights law.
