About the Event

Practitioners from Norton Rose Fulbright LLP will be visiting the Faculty to discuss the subject of business and humans rights. The notion that businesses have certain human rights obligations is rapidly gaining broad acceptance, particularly since the UN Human Rights Council unanimously endorsed the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights. It is generally believed that the Guiding Principles, which state that companies must investigate and mitigate human rights impacts, are crystallising into hard law.

This lecture is an excellent opportunity for LLM Students (particularly those taking the International Human Rights and Corporate Law modules) to learn about on-going and future developments in this important area of human rights law, which raises challenging questions about how businesses balance potentially conflicting rights. Students will also be able to gain a perspective of how Business and Human Rights works in practice and have an opportunity to develop an insight into a career in legal practice advising clients on business ethics.

Please note: all students must register to attend this event.




The UCL Centre for Ethics & Law was established in 2009 to reflect the growing need for enhanced collaboration between academics, practicing lawyers and industry, given the fast changing and increasingly interdisciplinary nature of the global issues lying at the intersection between ethics and regulatory compliance. The work of the Centre is resolutely multi-disciplinary and practice-oriented, focusing on a number of current themes including the professional ethics of in-house and external legal counsel, ethics of risk, anti-corruption, global business and human rights, and distributive justice.
