Human Rights Law Centre Annual Lecture 2016
It is a great pleasure to return to the University of Nottingham, especially as I
have such fond memories of being a junior lecturer here, more years ago than
I now care to remember. After my brief time here I went on to practise at the
Bar and more recently have been on the Bench. When I was a law student in
the early 1980s, a very senior barrister told me that there was no such thing in
this country as human rights law.
