Egypt/Day of the Endangered Lawyer: Toronto

Day of the Endangered Lawyer

Day of the Endangered Lawyer Program 2018

January 31 @ 5:30 pm – 8:30 pm


The Day of the Endangered Lawyer, marked on January 24th of each year, is a time to reflect on the personal and professional safety of lawyers around the world, who face mounting persecution, prosecution, arbitrary detention, threats, torture, assaults and death in reprisal for their work to protect rights and secure justice.

Each year, the Day of the Endangered Lawyer focuses on the plight of lawyers in a particular country with the focus this year on Egypt.

Join Human Rights Watch, Lawyers’ Rights Watch Canada and the Law Society of Ontario for a special event honouring our legal colleagues in Egypt and calling on authorities to respect their rights to practice law free from “intimidation, hindrance, harassment or improper interference”, to ensure their personal and professional safety and remedy violations against them.
