JUSTICE Student Human Rights Network invites you to join us for an evening of conversation with Baroness Helena Kennedy of the Shaws QC.

A founding member of Doughty Street Chambers, Baroness Kennedy has acted in many of the prominent cases of the last decades including the Brighton Bombing Trial and the Guildford Four Appeal.

She was appointed a life peer in 1997 and has focused in her work on access to justice and the ability of vulnerable individuals to protect their rights within the justice system.  She is Chair of the JUSTICE Council.

A frequent broadcaster and journalist on law and women’s rights, Helena Kennedy’s publications include the widely acclaimed Eve Was Framed: Women and British Justice and Just Law: The Changing Face of Justice and Why It Matters To Us All.

Andrea Coomber, JUSTICE’s Director, will lead the discussion, but you too will have a chance to put your questions on life in the law, human rights and the justice system to Helena – come ready for a lively exchange!


Baroness Helena Kennedy QC is an eminent criminal defence lawyer, a high-profile member of the House of Lords and a leading commentator on legal issues.

Andrea Coomber is Director of JUSTICE.


This event is aimed at law students, trainee solicitors and pupil barristers. It is free, but reservation is essential – please RSVP via the ‘Book now’ link at the bottom of the page. We anticipate that this event will be over-subscribed and that bookings will close some some before 25 November. Booking priority will be given to JUSTICE members.

JUSTICE is very grateful to DLA Piper for hosting this event.
