Doughty Street Chambers sponsored the 'Legal Journalism Award' at the inaugural Halsbury Legal Awards, that took place on 8th May 2013. Congratulations to the 'The Justice Gap', an online magazine promoting access to justice, covering legal affairs and developments from around the world.
Doughty Street Chambers supports and works closely with The Slynn Foundation, an important organisation focussed on the rule of law and the indpendence of the judiciary. The foundation promotes and encourages improvement in judicial and legal systems in Eastern Europe and in other parts of the world. It does this by arranging for leading legal representatives to deliver conferences, seminars and judicial exchanges, based on the principles of human rights as they affect the work of national courts, and Alternative Dispute Resolution, particularly mediation.
It also offers post-graduate fellowships in English law to enable young lawyers from European countries to gain an insight into the working of the English legal system and organises a series of annual lectures by leading experts on various aspects of European law.
