This event is being run by the Bar Human Rights Committee and is an opportunity for early career professionals and practitioners and bar students who are interested in developing a practice or working in international human rights law and related areas to hear directly from practitioners working in this area.
BHRC is delighted to welcome a range of experienced barristers, each of whom have built a practice in international human rights law in different ways. Each speaker will discuss their career journey, including how they developed their practice, and tips for those who want to work in international human rights law. This will be followed by a Q&A session.
The event will be chaired by BHRC’s Co-Vice Chair Gráinne Mellon (Barrister at Garden Court Chambers), who will discuss BHRC’s work in international human rights law and how members can get involved in the work of the Committee.
