My life and the law: a view from The Bench by Lord John Dyson

In the current circumstances we have taken the decision to cancel our public facing events which we were due to host in the coming weeks. This decision will come into effect from Monday 16 March and covers all events scheduled until 30 April 2020. Events planned after this date will be kept under review. Please keep checking for updates.

Ex-Master of the Rolls, Lord John Dyson, joins the list of high-profile speakers in Leeds Law School’s popular Law in Practice series.

Appointed Master of the Rolls in 2012, Lord Dyson will recount his life and career, from growing up in a Jewish community in 1950’s Leeds; to studying at Oxford University; working as a barrister in London and his judicial career as a high court judge, justice of The Court of Appeal and justice of The UK Supreme Court.

He will also talk about the art of advocacy, the jury system, what it is like to be a judge and he promises to share some of his most eye-catching cases. Join the debate as he questions how we reduce the threat of serious violent crime without criminalising a generation. Don’t miss your opportunity to hear from one of the leading lawyers of his generation.
