UCL Faculty of Laws hosts Hamlyn Lectures 2004

6 October 2004

UCL's Faculty of Laws will be hosting two of the Hamlyn Lectures 2004, entitled 'Rights at Work: Global, European and British Perspectives'.

Sir Bob Hepple QC FBA

The lectures will be delivered by Sir Bob Hepple QC FBA, formerly Dean and Head of Laws at UCL. Professor Hepple is Emeritus Master of Clare College and Emeritus Professor of Law, University of Cambridge. He is currently undertaking socio-legal research as a Leverhulme Emeritus Fellow, and as Senior Partner on a Nuffield Foundation New Career Development Award.

The Hamlyn Trust was created by Miss Emma Hamlyn in memory of her father, a solicitor and justice of the peace. The trust's aim is to further knowledge and understanding of the law, including the comparative jurisprudence of the chief European countries, among the people of the UK. Its objective is achieved primarily by an annual series of public lectures by distinguished judges, legal practitioners, academic lawyers and other eminent speakers.

Lecture 1, 'Rights in the Global Economy', on 16 November 2004, will be chaired by The Rt Hon Lord Steyn. Lecture 3, 'The Common Law and Statutory Rights', on 30 November, will be chaired by The Rt Hon Lord Hope of Craighead. Both lectures are at 6pm in UCL's JZ Young Lecture Theatre.
