One of the country’s leading criminal law barristers will deliver a flagship lecture at Hatfield’s University of Hertfordshire.
The Sir Christopher Staughton Memorial Lecture – named in memory of the distinguished judge – is the pinnacle of Hertfordshire Law School’s public law lecture series.
This year it will be delivered by Max Hill QC, whose role as a reviewer of terrorism legislation involves balancing the rights of citizens and the need for society to protect itself from risks to national security.
Mr Hill said: “There has never been a more important time to balance the need for scrutiny against the fundamental rights for all.
“In light of the appalling atrocities that are taking place on our streets we need to ensure that we have the right legislative tools at our disposal.”
