Event description

Rule of Law, Social Justice and Education – the crisis of the social transition from apartheid to democracy - lecture from Judge D Moseneke

2017 marks 25 years since the establishment of the Birkbeck School of Law, an institution with a mission to combine excellence in teaching and research, with access to education. To mark this milestone the School’s Annual Patrick MacAuslan Lecture on January 20th 2107 will be given by the eminent South African judge D. Moseneke.  

About the speaker

Judge Moseneke is distinguished for his commitment to the rule of law, social justice, democracy and accessible education. The judge's link to access to education is poignant. He was educated while serving a prison sentence on Robben Island, together with his friend Nelson Mandela, for opposing Apartheid. Judge Moseneke has served in South Africa’s Constitutional Court, both as the Court's Deputy Chief Justice and Acting Chief Justice.

The event is free, and open to the public but booking via Eventbrite is required.  Please follow the link below under "Further details" to register.
