Who knows about law? Largely graduates in highly skilled employment working in professional services. Who needs to know about law? Absolutely everybody. The UN Commission on Legal Empowerment of the Poor found that 4 billion people across the world are denied the opportunity of improving their lives through escaping poverty.
I’ve spent a major proportion of my career trying to change that.
- Leading ‘The Rule of Law for Citizenship Education’ I have given over 100 lessons to school-age children on the rule of law.
- Working with the international law firm DLA Piper I teach an annual summer school on the Rule of Law. It has taken me to Kenya and Tanzania, meeting students from over 30 countries in the three years that I have led the course.
- In the UK I have been a Visiting Lecturer at Middlesex University since 2017 and was appointed in 2020 as a Lecturer in Law at London South Bank University. These roles mean a lot to me because they enable me to help build the lawyers of tomorrow.
The Bingham Centre has recently set up an incredibly exciting initiative, our ‘Public and Youth Engagement Programme’. This programme trains young lawyers to run lessons in schools on the rule of law and human rights. Get involved here!
