Law firms are coming under increasing pressure to recognise human rights, not only due to corporate responsibility obligations, but also the needs of their clients. The Law Society is currently delivering a programme to support its members to address issues surrounding business and human rights, both within their own businesses and in their role as adviser to their clients.
The Law Society’s Business and Human Rights programme will be running a series of events and activities throughout 2015 across England & Wales including:
• One-to-one consultations • Business and Human Rights seminars and consultative forums in London, Cambridge, Leeds/Manchester, Birmingham/Bristol and Cardiff • Opportunities for members to become more familiar with recent developments in the area of business and human rights and the implications of these for their practices • Opportunities to share your views through our this online survey and written submissions
This survey will help the Law Society better understand what the needs and interests of its members are in the area of business and human rights.
For more information on events in your area, an opportunity to meet with one of our expert consultancy team or more information on the programme please contact Sarah Smith at BHR@lawsociety.org.uk
Complete all the questions in this survey and you will have a chance to win one of three £50 vouchers for Prezzo restaurant! Good luck!
