New feature: Upcoming human rights events

2 November 2012 by

Eagle-eyed readers may have spotted that I have added an ‘Upcoming Events’ list to the right sidebar, underneath the ‘Recommended’ and ‘Case Law’ links. 

If you would like events added to this list, email me. Please only send events which (i) have their own webpage which can be linked to, and (ii) are relevant to topics covered by the blog. This is (as with everything on the blog) a free service. There are currently two exciting events featured, an audience with Mr Justice Rabinder Singh at the LSE and a JUSTICE event about online law.

Whilst I am here, if you didn’t already know, the ‘Recommended’ list of links are all links to external sources which I update a few times daily with up-to-the minute human rights news. These links, which can also all be found here (I use a service called Delicious – there have been over 3,000 since the blog launched), are then fed magically into the weekly Human Rights Roundup. The upcoming events list will now be included in the weekly update too.

Oh, and one more thing (Steve Jobs-style) – all of the UK Human Rights Blog posts are divided into categories, by article of the European Convention on Human Rights as well as legal topic. If you want to search by category, either click on ‘Archive‘ above, or on the ‘Browse by Legal Topic’ sidebar which is just on the right.

The blog has recently surpassed 1.5 million hits since its launch at the end of March 2010. Thanks for reading!

    Dear Mr Wagner:

    I am writing to express my thanks to you and your colleagues for your blog. It is an invaluableresource, which my students appreciate greatly also; and it just keeps getting better and better.

    I began teaching about the ECHR and Civil Liberties (public courses and then on LLBs and LLMs) in 1974, and your blog has been one of the great advances, complementing the excellent collections of C & M by Bailey, Harris & Jones and, later, by Mowbray. Over the years I have been lucky enough to work on various projects on human rights with some inspiring people, including James Fawcett in the early days, and their generosity and commitment has been wonderful. I see you as carrying on that fine tradition.

    Yours sincerely,

    Lars Mosesson
