MARTHA SPURRIER - DIRECTOR OF LIBERTY  

TO GIVE NCLS ANNUAL LAW LECTUR  

ON WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 15th, 2017

NORWICH CATHEDRAL HOSTRY 6pm

We are very pleased that Martha Spurrier, will be giving our annual public law lecture on the subject of “HUMAN RIGHTS AND ACCESS TO JUSTICE IN A POST-BREXIT WORLD.”

Martha became Director of Liberty in May 2016 from Doughty Street Chambers, where as a barrister she specialised in defending access to justice and the rights of women, children and disabled people.

She has acted for bereaved families seeking answers after loved ones died in state care, represented victims of rape, domestic violence and trafficking who were failed by the police, brought claims on behalf of prisoners and immigration detainees who had been mistreated in custody and challenged attempts to curb press freedom, privacy and protest rights. She has represented organisations such as the Howard League for Penal Reform, Mind, Medical Justice, and Just for Kids Law, working at all levels including the Supreme Court and the European Court of Human Rights. At the Public Law Project she worked to challenge some of the worst effects of the legal aid cuts. 

At Liberty, Martha is a clear voice raising the many issues of EU and British citizen rights and protections in the confusing context of Brexit.

COME AND HEAR MARTHA AND JOIN THE DEBATE! TICKETS - £10 including glass of wine (£5 for students) can be reserved in advance by emailing supporters@ncls.co.uk, or bought at the door.
