The Open University Law School is pleased to invite you to hear from Kimberley Motley, a renowned international lawyer, speaking on her philosphy of legal practice and examples of her cases.
This exclusive event takes place on Tuesday 17 April and includes networking, lecture and question and answer session. This event takes place at the Church House Conference Centre in London.
During this event, Kimberley will present our Law Students of the Year 2017 and the Tom Bingham Memorial Essay Prize 2018 competition winners with their prizes.
In this talk we examine Motley's philosophy of legal practice which evolved in Afghanistan by taking a deep dive into some of her most consequential cases internationally.
Kimberley is one of the world’s most respected lawyers, working in one of the world’s most complex legal systems.
