Join a discussion group for a brown bag (BYO) lunch to hear a short presentation followed by discussion.

Article 6 of the European Convention on Human Rights protects the right to a fair trial in civil and criminal proceedings. The Article 6 rights are the most heavily-litigated Convention rights before the European Court of Human Rights, generating a large and complex body of case law. This presentation will summarise and critically analyse some of the major jurisprudential issues and problems in the Article 6 case law, and look at recent decisions of the European Court of Human Rights in this area (especially Ibrahim v UK (Grand Chamber, September 2016)).

As places are limited, should people register and then be unable to attend, they are kindly asked to cancel their booking so that others can attend.
