8 March 2024

University of Manchester hosted a human rights and legal aid careers event

A sold-out evening exploring human rights and legal aid careers was held earlier this week at the University of Manchester in association with Garden Court North Chambers.

The event was introduced by our associate member Dr Philip Drake – Senior Lecturer of Law, Director of Social Responsibility for the School of Social Sciences, and Director of the Justice Hub at the University.

The four-person expert panel of Manchester-based legal practitioners was chaired by Garden Court North’s Lily Lewis, who was joined by Jennifer Devans-Tamakloe of 23 Essex Street Chambers, Ryan Bradshaw from Leigh Day Solicitors, and Greater Manchester Law Centre’s Rosie Coan.

The panel gave an insight into their careers by sharing the motivations and practical considerations that brought them to their current roles, as well as discussing their recent work and areas of interest.

The event was supported by the The University of Manchester’s School of Social Sciences’ Employability funding.
