The Rule of law in a changing world with Murray Hunt of The Bingham Centre
As Director of the Bingham Centre for the Rule of Law, Murray Hunt has had a lifelong interest in the social significance of the law and the ways in which practitioners can help to develop a better understanding of the role of the law in society, politics and business. Murray’s session for BCKR will cover modern slavery, accountability for war crimes, parliamentary scrutiny and the significance of the rule of law for global businesses, as he takes members through his own varied career journey as well as the ways in which lawyers can broaden their horizons by engaging with the rule of law issues which confront us today, both domestically and internationally.
He is also the UK’s alternate member of the Council of Europe’s Commission for Democracy Through Law (the Venice Commission) and Legal Adviser to the All Party Parliamentary Group on the Rule of Law, for which the Bingham Centre provides the secretariat. Murray is also an Associate Member of Matrix, which, with a number of like-minded barristers, he helped to set up in 2000.
