JUSTICE Student Conference Saturday 7 March 2020

This year’s keynote address will be given by Tessa Khan. Tessa is an international human rights and climate change lawyer and Co-Director of the Climate Litigation Network (CLN), a project of the Urgenda Foundation.

In addition, the conference will give you the opportunity to learn about some of the legal challenges JUSTICE will be addressing in the year ahead. They will be running exciting and thought-provoking workshops on upcoming projects focusing on the benefits system, the family justice system, and magistrates’ courts.

You will also hear from a panel of junior lawyers about their experience of the legal profession and receive invaluable advice on how to navigate your own career path. In addition, the JUSTICE team will host a clinical session on dissertation topics. This will give you the chance to receive feedback from our lawyers on your ideas for dissertation topics.
