Event: Debating the Constitution after the Election

19 May 2015 by Adam Wagner

ukcla-manchester-logosI’m delighted to say that I will be giving the keynote address at the UK Constitutional Law Association‘s one-day conference at the University of Manchester on the subject of “Debating the Constitution after the Election”. Topical, eh?

The conference is on Wednesday 24 June. My keynote is entitled: The slow death of the UK Human rights system: Is it just a matter of time or can the UK learn to love human rights? I wrote that before the Election, so perhaps remove “slow”.

Full details and line up here and below. There are two ways to attend the conference:

(1) Be a member of the UKCLA (here’s how) and attend for free by simply e-mailing UKCLACON15@manchester.ac.uk ; OR

(2) Pay the £10 registration fee and register via this EventBrite link.

On Wednesday 24 June 2015, the UKCLA will be hosting a conference at the University of Manchester.
