Description

David Hammond, the CEO of the charity Human Rights at Sea, will visit Nottingham on Tuesday 21 March for a lunchtime talk on, An Introduction to Human Rights at Sea: The concept, the charity, our work.

Human Rights at Sea is  a young human rights organisation which has seen a rapid expansion with international engagement on issues surrounding maritime abuses of human rights, as well as for the delivery of innovative publications and exposing abuse issues at sea. David Hammond’s CV is here.​

The focus of his talk will be to introduce the charity,​ how it started, its huge range of work and topic areas. David will also introduce their Legal Research Programme: how it works, how it can help students' professional development, while assisting in developing the charity’s platform. 

"I am delighted to have the opportunity to come to meet the students of Nottingham's School of Law and to introduce our independent maritime human rights charity, Human Rights at Sea. As a former naval and criminal barrister engaged in a host of legal roles from defence, to prosecutuon to advisory roles up to senior levels of government, the chance to discuss our wide-ranging work with the next generation of lawyers is an exciting prospect." David Hammond, CEO, Human Rights at Sea.
