As we prepare for a general election and a new Parliament, JUSTICE brings together representatives of the three main sitting parties in the last to discuss their record on the justice system and  their manifesto commitments for 2015 and beyond.

From legal aid, court fees, judicial review and secret evidence the work of this Parliament has had a significant impact on the complexion of our justice system and on our civil, criminal and administrative law. Commitments for 2015 are likely to range from new surveillance legislation and further counter-terror measures to new rights for victims and repeal of the Human Rights Act 1998.

Join us for a lively discussion, chaired by Afua Hirsch, Social Affairs Editor, Sky News.

Panellists: 

Lord Faulks QC, Conservative;
Simon Hughes, Liberal Democrat;
Andy Slaughter, Labour.   

The debate is supported by The Law Society, The Bar Council, The Chartered Institute of Legal Executives, The Society of Conservative Lawyers, The Society of Labour Lawyers and the Liberal Democrat Lawyers Association.

The event will be followed by a reception kindly hosted by Allen & Overy.

THIS EVENT IS NOW SOLD OUT.
