LCN Annual Conference 2020 - Activist Lawyers in a changing world (14-17 December 2020)

2020 was a year like no other and, at times, lawyers have been under attack for defending the rights of people, speaking truth to power.

Thank you to those of you who joined us at our first pick-and-mix conference in December. There were thought provoking plenary sessions with speakers from around the world, feisty debates, experts providing updates, engaging workshops, networking opportunities, and we even had some fun at our Murder Mystery and Christmas Karaoke sessions.

We would like to thank everyone who contributed to this successful event and we look forward to continuing to work with you all in the new year, with the hope 2021 will be a better year for everyone.
