Fancy a break from revision?

This time of year is grim, no question. If you’re not spending every second poring over your revision notes then you feel like you’re not working hard enough….but why not pick a few law events to go along to?

There are loads listed on the Lawbore City Hub, including the Human Rights Lawyers’ Association Seminar on the 28th May (6pm – 7.30pm): Article 3 of the European Convention on Human Rights: Anti-Torture and Inhumane Treatment, featuring the following speakers:


Sapna Malik – Leigh Day
Adam Wagner – One Crown Office Row
Kat Craig – Reprieve

RSVP to HRLA Administrator for a reserved place.

Bit last-minute but City’s Centre for Law, Justice and Journalism and the Human Rights Centre at the University of Essex are holding a panel discussion this evening regarding the recent judgment on Google Spain and the “right to be forgotten“.

Speakers include:

Jonathan Coad, Partner, Lewis Silkin
Professor Steve Peers, University of Essex
Professor Lorna Woods, University of Essex
Peter Noorlander, Chief Executive, Media Legal Defence Initiative
Hugh Tomlinson QC, Matrix Chambers

If you want to swot up on the case first, you can read commentary on the HRC blog and Law, Justice and Journalism blog.
