Boycott law summit says Justice Alliance

Issue No. 2439

The Justice Alliance has called on lawyers to boycott the Global Law Summit in protest at the government’s legal policies.

The Ministry of Justice (MoJ) plans to commemorate the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta with the law summit.

But the Justice Alliance, along with the London Criminal Courts Solicitors’ Association (LCCSA), has put on an alternative event on the same night. 

Activists are calling on lawyers to attend the Not the Global Law Summit event instead to protest at the government’s attacks on legal aid.

Mon 23 Feb, 6.30pm, Union Chapel, Compton Ave, London N1 2XD.
