We are honoured to host the third annual Sir Henry Brooke Awards for Human Rights Defenders. The awards will be an opportunity to celebrate the commitment of our beloved late patron Sir Henry Brooke, and the lawyers and other human rights defenders we protect, to the rule of law. This is increasingly prescient as civil liberties and human rights lawyers come under increasing fire in the UK and all over the world.
The annual ceremony reminds us of the challenges that rights defenders face in contexts where the rule of law is weak. They are vital to the defence of fundamental freedoms, for which they often pay with their own lives.
Please register for this virtual event to receive an invitation link. The awards will be one hour long.
