“When and why do charities revert to the law?”, on Tuesday 22nd November.
Many charities champion issues related to their beneficiaries and campaign for better treatment for them but when is it appropriate to resort to the law in order to defend their interests? Legal action is not cheap so what are the circumstances under which it is justified? The aim of this seminar is open up what happens when charities engage law firms and for this we are grateful to our speaker, Alex Rook, who is a human rights lawyer and Partner at Irwin Mitchell LLP. Alex has been involved in a number of high profile and significant legal challenges on behalf of individuals with disabilities and care needs.
Trustees of disability or social care charities as well as those with a strong campaigning practice will find this seminar particularly useful but it will also be of general interest to members and clients who want to take the lid off what happens in reality when you revert to the law.
Where is the seminar and how do I get in?
The seminar will be held at 5pm at CAN Mezzanine, 49-51 East Road, London N1 6AH. The nearest tube is Old Street. There is no charge for entry. To reserve a place you will need to email Dawn McNulty, firstname.lastname@example.org
