Human Rights in the UK: from political aspirations to binding legal norms

Tuesday 15 October, 1.15-2.30pm
D302, Clement House 

The place of human rights in the UK has been transformed over the past decade. Human rights law has increasingly become part of the mainstream of both law and politics within the UK. As a result, politicians, public administrators and lawyers have had to adjust to the realisation that human rights are not merely vague aspirations but have a solid underpinning of legal doctrine and technicality. How are they responding to the challenge of this new body of law?

Professor David Feldman will be speaking on Human Rights in the UK: from political aspirations to binding legal norms on Tuesday 15 October at LSE. 

David Feldman, BCL, MA, FRSA, is legal adviser to the Joint Committee on Human Rights in the Houses of Parliament and Professor of Law in the University of Birmingham. He is an international judge of the Constitutional Court of the Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Peter Townsend will chair this lecture, which is free and open to all. No ticket required.
