Trinity Law Association: Rt. Hon. Lord Justice Singh and Professor Catherine Barnard, in conversation
November 16, 2022 at 18:15 to 21:00 GMT
Sir Rabinder Singh, Trinity’s distinguished legal alumnus, has been one of the leading lights in the recent development of the common law, most notably in the field of human rights and the law of privacy. We are delighted and honoured that he has agreed to devote an evening to the TLA, centred around his inspiring book, ‘The Unity of Law’, which tracks the evolution of his approach to the common law.
In conversation with Prof. Catherine Barnard, Sir Rabinder will reflect on the defining themes of his career as an advocate and judge, and on the development of the common law in the post-Brexit world.
The conversation will be followed by a drinks reception with canapés and networking at White & Case LLP, 5 Old Broad Street, London EC2N 1DW, from 6.15 – 9 pm on Wednesday 16 November.
