Page Contents >

Law Department and Clifford Chance in conjunction with JUSTICE: The Rule of Law series

Date: Wednesday 1 March 2006
Time: 6.30pm
Venue
: Hong Kong Theatre, Clement House
Speaker: Roger Smith
Commentator: Baroness Hale
Chair: Professor Christine Chinkin

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. This series will underline the continued importance of the value of the rule of law and its various aspects.

Roger Smith is a solicitor and director of JUSTICE. He has also been director of the Legal Action Group, solicitor to the Child Poverty Action Group, and director of West Hampstead Community Law Centre. Baroness Hale is a Law Lord.

The next event in the series takes place on Wednesday 8 March - Shami Chakrabarti, director of Liberty, will give a lecture on Terrorism and the Rule of Law|.

This event is free and open to all with no ticket required. Entry is on a first come, first serve basis.
