About this public lecture
This public lecture is part of a Law and Michael Freeman Colloquium taking place on the full days of 1 & 2 July 2013.

The UNCRC is nearly a quarter of a century old. Have we invested too much hope in it? An audit would show that children's lives have not got noticeably better.

Professor Freeman will ask why.

  1. Is it because the Convention is not good enough? 
  2. Is it because the rights approach is the wrong way to tackle the ills of childhood? 
  3. Or is it because the UNCRC is another strategy to control and regulate children? 

Professor Freeman will suggest that all three answers are both right and wrong.

UCL Faculty of Laws

The Faculty of Laws at UCL has a world-class reputation for research, and has been rated by the UK government in the highest categories for both research and teaching.

We value research not only in contributing to the quality of our teaching and the supervision we give our students, but also in its contribution to the development of law and its influence on legal practice and public policy.

The Faculty was ranked 2nd in the UK by The Times Good University Guide (subject table: Law) in 2008. UCL is ranked 4th in the World University rankings.
