Foreign Affairs and Domestic Courts: a Sea Change

Friday 22 November, at 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
University of South Wales (Treforest Campus)

Lord Lloyd-Jones, Justice of the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom

Faculty of Business and Society, USW in association with the Learned Society of Wales

The last century has witnessed the growth of a substantive body of international law governing the relations between the world’s nation-states, but its increased use to protect the rights of individuals represents a potentially significant blurring of the boundary between national and international jurisdictions. What principles might guide the resolution of disputes in this increasingly complex field?

To address these matters, we are delighted to welcome to the university one of the foremost experts in the UK on international public law. Lord Lloyd-Jones was educated at Pontypridd Boys’ Grammar School and Downing College, Cambridge. Called to the bar in 1975, he was later appointed Queen’s Counsel in 1999. Lord Lloyd-Jones has acted in numerous high profile proceedings, including the Pinochet extradition litigation and the ‘Bloody Sunday’ and Hutton inquiries. He was appointed as a Justice of The Supreme Court of the United Kingdom in 2017.

Places for this session are limited and we expect demand to be high. Please reserve your space here:
