Professor Chantal Stebbings announced as the next Chair of the Hamlyn Trust
The School of Law is delighted to announce that Professor Chantal Stebbings has been elected as the next Chair of the Hamlyn Trust.
The Trust was created in 1948 by Miss Emma Hamlyn in memory of her father, a solicitor and Justice of the Peace in Torquay, Devon, with the object of furthering knowledge and understanding of the law among the public.
This is achieved through an annual series of public lectures by distinguished judges, legal practitioners, academic lawyers and other eminent speakers.
The Hamlyn Lectures are now one of the leading series of public lectures in the Common Law world, and they have been held on an annual basis since Lord Denning gave the inaugural lecture in 1949.
Recent lecturers include Professor Paul Craig, Jack Straw, Sir John Laws and Lord Bingham.
The trust is administered from the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies, University of London, and the lectures are published by Cambridge University Press.
