JUSTICE Student Human Rights Conference: Human Rights Beyond the Courtroom

14 March 2015

In an election year when one of the UK’s main political parties will challenge the role of the Human Rights Act 1998 plays in the protection of individual rights; we explore the importance of human rights- and the protection of the HRA- beyond the courtroom.
