UCL Jurisprudence Review Launch 2009

Panel and audience discussion on the Limitations of Human Rights

On Friday, 9 October 2009 at 4pm, the UCL Jurisprudence Review will host a panel of pre-eminent scholars and lawyers to explore the limitations of human rights law.

Does human rights express ideology of western liberalism? Does it view social injustice too narrowly? Whom does it benefit most and who is left out? Has the human rights movement reached its potential? A panel of distinguished speakers will address these issues to an
audience of academics, students, lawyers and journalists at the University College London’s Gustave Tuck Theatre.

Speakers include Kimberlé Crenshaw, professor at Columbia Law School and a prominent figure in critical race theory; David Kennedy, professor at Harvard Law School, known for his criticism of international law; Philippe Sands QC, professor of law at UCL and author of 'Torture Team'; and William Twining, Emeritus Quain Professor of Jurisprudence at UCL.
