The Annual Human Rights Law Conference, organised jointly by JUSTICE: the British Section of the ICJ and Sweet Maxwell, has become the central forum for analysing changes under the UK Human Rights Act. Each year, the conference provides an ideal opportunity to update UK legal practice with analysis from some of the most prominent practitioners and academics in this field.
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.
Drawing on the expertise of many of the leading authorities in this field, the day combines core plenary sessions with a choice of eight workshop options examining specific areas of law.
This year’s conference takes place on Friday 25 October 2002 :
As the Human Rights Act becomes established in UK law, the value of annual review of relevant case law and legislative developments increases.
The 4th Annual JUSTICE / Sweet & Maxwell Human Rights Law conference is an excellent opportunity to update your practice. With a combination of core plenary sessions and a choice from eight workshop options – all packed into one day – you are able to choose sessions relevant to your area of practice and discuss the implications of changes with leading experts.
Key issues to be discussed at this year’s conference include:
- How are the courts defining public authorities under the Act?
- Is judicial review coping with the new regime?
- Can the Act be used to address inadequacies in public service delivery?
- Has the Act been effective in protecting the most vulnerable in society?
This conference provides an ideal opportunity to update your practice with analysis from some of the most prominent practitioners and academics in this field.
