College of Law Inside Track Podcast: Shami Chakrabarti, Director of Liberty
Today I talk to Shami Chakrabarti, Director of Liberty. Shami Chakrabarti gives her thoughts on why the Human Rights Act is so important and outlines Liberty’s key role in the successful campaign to defeat proposals to increase the period that terror suspects could be held without charge to 42 days. She also discusses the role of the judiciary in upholding democratic values and gives advice to young lawyers interested in working within the field of human rights and civil liberties.
This concludes my series of podcasts for The College of Law. Earlier podcasts in the series may be found on the College of Law website
