Date: 20th March

In the 800th anniversary year of Magna Carta, two former chancellors –Helena Kennedy QC and Jon Snow – will return to join Oxford Brookes’ present chancellor, Shami Chakrabarti CBE in discussion. Shami will begin by exploring why our fundamental rights and freedoms are indispensable and the unprecedented pressures those rights are under today.
