Description:
Join us on January 24, 2018, the Day of the Endangered Lawyer, for a panel discussing international principles that govern both lawyers’ and judges’ roles in upholding the rule of law. The panel will examine violations of those standards including: harassment, threats, governmental supervision, imprisonment, and, in some cases, targeted killing of lawyers and judges. Experts on Kenya, Egypt, and Vietnam will discuss the experiences of lawyers in each of these countries and discuss what we can do to better understand the dangers that lawyers face and assist them in their work.
