from Mothiur Rahman’s description of the event:
Next week is “Justice Week, an initiative launched by the Law Society and Bar Council amongst others, the professional representative bodies for solicitors and barristers respectively.
The Law Society’s website explains the need for Justice Week in the following way: “with many parts of the UK system at breaking point now is the time to make a strong and clear case for why justice is so fundamental to the UK’s society, economy and democracy, helping place it and the rule of law at the centre stage of public and political debate.” (https://www.lawsociety.org.uk/policy-campaigns/justice-week/).
As part of Justice Week, Mothiur Rahman (New Economy Law) will be in conversation with Peter Gabel & Nanette Schorr of PISLAP, a US network of lawyers, academics, law students and other legal professionals at the forefront of shaping an understanding of justice inspired by the spiritual values and social activism of Martin Luther King (http://www.spiritlawpolitics.org). Gita Parihar (legal consultant and trustee of UK Youth Climate Coalition) will then host and facilitate a discussion between those who join the call and Nanette and Peter – what can we learn from our PISLAP colleagues to help both UK lawyers and wider civil society think and reflect on the direction of the justice system here?
This is an invitation to join the conversation, for both lawyers and those in wider civil society interested in exploring the bringing together of law and spiritual values for political transformation. The call will be online by Zoom video conference on Friday October@4pm GMT. The call will last approximately 1 hour.
