Being Human | The Humanity of Lawyers - Mavis Maclean

19 November 2015

The Humanity of Lawyers

Mavis Maclean CBE | Senior Research Fellow in the Faculty of Law, University of Oxford and Honorary Bencher of Middle Temple

Barristers carry out much of their work in public courtrooms, clearly identifiable in wig and gown, yet much of their professional lives and culture remain hidden from public view. This event seeks to explore how barristers perform their role. How do they manage their own personal beliefs and emotions? What ethical considerations guide them? How do they balance their own humanity with the complexity of their task in representing others?

Through an evening discussion in the Parliament Chamber at Inner Temple, a public audience will be given an insight into barristers' professional lives and an opportunity to engage with practitioners and scholars who study them.

This event is present by the Information Law and Policy Centre at the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies, with guidance from Atalanta Goulandris, Department of Sociology, City University London.
