Throughout our history, JUSTICE has been at the forefront of ensuring that human rights and the rule of law is central to law reform and our justice system. The past year has seen widespread challenges to the rule of law in the UK, from breaches of international law, verbal attacks on lawyers by senior Government officials, to the proposed Bill of Rights Bill. A robust defence of the rule of law, and the work of JUSTICE, has never been more needed.
This year, we are hosting a a series of fundraising events discussing the current threats to human rights and the rule of law in the UK. We’ll be joined by senior retired judges, leading practitioners, parliamentarians, and academics for evenings of debate and discussion. All funds raised will go directly to support our work, ensuring that we continue to defend the rule of law and human rights for generations to come.
Tickets are £50 per event, including a drinks reception.
Each event begins at 6pm (registration from 5:45pm) and is followed by a drinks reception until 8pm. To support our work, you can also make a donation now.
