Law and Liberty: reflections on campaigning by Shami Chakrabarti

Shami Chakrabarti is the veteran Director of the leading NGO on civil rights, Liberty. She discusses a lifetime of campaigning on issues affecting all members of society with James Wolffe QC, Dean of the Faculty of Advocates.

JUSTICE Scotland is hosting a unique series of events over two years as part of the Securing JUSTICE at 60 Appeal.

Each series will consist of four events around themes that connect the law and the wider world and is designed to engage writers, film-makers, thinkers and social commentators in a dialogue about the law.

View the full programme of events.

JUSTICE is making a small charge for the event in order to raise crucial funds to sustain the Scottish branch. The events will be hosted by the Faculty of Advocates in the Laigh Hall, Parliament House, Edinburgh.

All events will be chaired by the Rt Hon. Lord Hodge, Justice of the UK Supreme Court.

Each event will be followed by a drinks reception and a book signing by contributors.
