Lord Hodge, Deputy President of the UK Supreme Court of the United Kingdom, is to deliver a special lecture to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Clark Foundation.

The event takes place online on Thursday 4 November. Lord Hodge will address the audience on the importance of embracing developments in technology and societal values to best uphold the rule of law in modern democratic society.

 

The Clark Foundation for Legal Education was founded in 1991 by Jean Clark, a retired Scottish solicitor, to promote the law of Scotland and support lawyers and law students who wished to further their legal studies. Since then, the Foundation has enhanced the learning experiences and educational opportunities of a great number of lawyers in Scotland, contributing significantly to improved diversity and inclusion in the profession. 

The event will be chaired by John Fulton WS, chair of the trustees of the Clark Foundation. 

 

Lord Hodge will speak for 45 minutes, after which there will be a live Q&A with the audience for 20 minutes, facilitated by the trustees. The event begins at 5.30pm and will close by 7pm.

This event is free and open to all. Advance booking is recommended, at this link.
