Professor Dimitrios Giannoulopoulos, from Goldsmiths University of London, Faculty of Law, gave a lecture to Collyers’ students on the operation and significance of human rights against the socio-political backdrop of continuing Euroscepticism and Brexit.

Janene Weymouth, Head of Law at Collyers, who organised the event, was extremely pleased with its success: “The lecture theatre was full to maximum capacity of students from all disciplines. The event truly demonstrated the enthusiasm of the younger generation engaging in contemporary political/legal issues.”

A-Level Law student Jacob Tasker commented: “The Human Rights lecture was incredibly interesting and highly informative. In addition to the content being an excellent supplement to our A-Level Law course, it encouraged the audience to consider the significance of the European Convention on Human Rights, now more than 50 years old, within a modern society. In particular, the importance of democracy, rule of law, individual liberty, and respect and tolerance within a pluralistic society.”

Deputy Principal Steve Martell was delighted: “Huge thanks to Dimitrios Giannoulopoulos for today’s inspiring and informative lecture. We are also incredibly grateful to Janene Weymouth for co-ordinating this wonderful learning opportunity for our students.”
