The Academic Panel of the AJC is pleased to present a webinar on Human Rights and Administrative Justice. The webinar is in place of an earlier workshop which was postponed due to COVID-19. The webinar will be hosted by Brian Thompson, Senior Lecturer of Law, Liverpool University. Speakers will include:

– Dr Ciara Fitzpatrick, Ulster University, will be presenting on her joint report, commissioned by The Legal Education Foundation and The Joseph Rowntree Foundation, on the role of the law and access to legal services (or lack thereof) in creating pathways into, and out of, destitution.

– Professor Grainne McKeever, Ulster University, will speak about her research with Mark Simpson on ‘Principles into Practice: Embedding dignity and respect in a Scottish social security system’.

– Professor Colm O’Cinneide, University College London, will look at the legal avenues through which social rights are indirectly protected by law at present, and the relationship between national and international human rights law in this context

Presentations will be followed by a Q&A session and discussion.
