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

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.
