In recent times the great advance in human rights discussion has to an extent eclipsed the truism that without the rule of law and its institutional features these rights will not be realised in practice.
Shami Chakrabarti, director of Liberty, and Sir Sydney Kentridge QC, a former acting judge of the Constitutional Court of South Africa, will participate in an event at LSE on Wednesday 8 March. Shami Chakrabarti will speak on terrorism and the rule of law, with Sir Sydney Kentridge QC commenting on the points made.
This event is the final in a series of events over the Lent 2006 term on The Rule of Law organised by LSE's Law Department and Clifford Chance in conjunction with JUSTICE.
Shami Chakrabarti became director of Liberty in September 2003. Sir Sydney Kentridge QC is a former acting judge of the Constitutional Court of South Africa.
Terrorism and the Rule of Law is on Wednesday 8 March 2006 at 6.30pm in the Hong Kong Theatre, Clement House, LSE, Aldwych, London WC2A. This event is free and open to all with no ticket required.
