AGM and John McDonnell lecture - 19 November

The next lecture in this year's series of Human Rights Law lectures will take place this Wednesday 19 November at 6.30pm. John McDonnell MP will be speaking on "Holding the executive to account: Parliament and the Courts, an MP's perspective".

The venue for the lecture is Basement Lecture Theatre (GSB01), School of Law, London Metropolitan University, 16 Goulston Street, London E1 7TP. Please note that this is a change in venue from last year's lecture series, which took place at the University of Law. The rest of this year's lecture series will also take place at London Met.

The lecture will be followed by the Haldane Society's AGM (expected about 8pm). Members are encouraged to attend the AGM.
