Want to use the law to make a difference? Become a rebellious lawyer…
RebLaw UK is the sister conference to Yale Law School’s RebLaw, the largest student-run public interest law conference in the US. The conference, grounded in the spirit of Gerald Lopez’s ‘Rebellious Lawyering’, seeks to build a community of law students, practitioners, and activists striving to work in the service of social change movements and to challenge hierarchies of race, wealth, gender, and expertise within legal practice and education.
The University of Law is working with Yale Law School to launch a UK-based conference that shares the same values. RebLaw UK will take place November 12th 2016 at ULaw’s Moorgate centre. The conference will kick off with a keynote speech from Shauneen Lambe, executive director of Just for Kids Law, and will be followed by 3 ‘breakout sessions’. Each breakout session will consist of four panels running in parallel. We have some fantastic speakers confirmed, including campaigners, lawyers and academics from Matrix Chambers, Garden Court Chambers, Doughty Street Chambers, Leigh Day, the National Aids Trust, LSE, ATLEU, Maternity Action, South London Rape Crisis Centre, Trans Equality Legal Initiative, the Electoral Reform Commission, and Privacy International.
Tickets will go on sale in mid-October, with the precise release date being announced via social media. To stay up to date and be first in line for tickets, like us on Facebook (Facebook.com/reblawuk) and follow us on Twitter @RebLaw_UK)! We only have 250 tickets available (£10 each including lunch) and they are expected to sell out very quickly.
All the best,
RebLaw UK Chair
