Justice and Human Rights Leadership Hustings

Justice and Human Rights Leadership Hustings

LCHR and SLL present the Justice and Human Rights Leadership Hustings

About this Event

The Justice and Human Rights Leadership Hustings, hosted by the Labour Campaign for Human Rights (LCHR) and the Society of Labour Lawyers (SLL), will take place on Monday 10th February at 7.30pm in Parliament.

Whilst none of the candidates are able to attend, we are very pleased to say that they are all sending impressive MPs to represent them at the hustings:

  • Keir Starmer is sending Nick Thomas-Symonds MP to represent him

  • Lisa Nandy is sending Stephen Kinnock MP to represent her

  • Emily Thornberry is sending Catherine West MP to represent her

  • Rebecca-Long Bailey is sending Lloyd Russell-Moyle to represent her

The hustings will focus on the following issues:

  • crime and justice

  • legal aid

  • constitutional reform and judicial independence

  • human rights in the UK (including economic, social and cultural rights)

  • human rights overseas- international law

We would also like to focus on diversity in law, the casualisation of the legal workforce and the wellbeing of lawyers.

We believe that these are hugely important issues for the next Labour Leader to address and that Party members should have a clear idea of where each candidate stands on them.
