21 January 2021: Atkin Chambers sponsors Pembroke College Oxford’s annual Blackstone Lecture

11th Jan 2021

Atkin Chambers is pleased to support the 2021 Pembroke College’s Blackstone Lecture. This year’s lecture “Justice in a crisis”, will be given by The Rt Hon Sir Ernest Ryder, Master of Pembroke College, on the 21st of January at 5.30pm.

Justice in a crisis

Amidst the clash of arms, the law is not silent. But the question to be answered is how is it to be effective in and after a crisis? That is a question not simply about the rule of law but about justice and its systems. It is about the dignity of people in our communities and how the common good ought to be pursued by the State so that the trust, respect and confidence of people in the rule of law is maintained. Political, normative and empirical perspectives will be considered in answer to the question. This year’s Blackstone Lecturer, the Rt Hon Sir Ernest Ryder, will explore principles, priorities, examples and solutions in a wide-ranging debate about Justice in a Crisis.

About the Series

When, in the early 1970s, a generous benefactor of Pembroke College suggested the establishment of a distinguished lecture series in law sponsored by the College, no similar event existed in Oxford’s Law Faculty. The Blackstone Lectures have since 1976 provided audiences with the distilled thoughts of the most distinguished legal minds of the late 20th and early 21st centuries.
