We are delighted to announce Sir Mark Hedley will be giving the 13th Conkerton Memorial Lecture.
Judicial Discretion: is it compatible with Justice?
Sir Mark will explore the tensions between certainty (justice) and the right individual result (discretion) as well as the
conflicts of values in the actual exercise of discretion.
This event is open to all those in the legal profession and students of law (undergraduates upwards).
There will be a photographer from 5:30 – 6:30 to capture the evening.
This event is free to attend.
The Conkerton Memorial Fund was set up to recognise the devotion of Mr. and Mrs. Conkerton to the furtherance of legal education and with the specific intention of bringing together the legal profession and students of law at the universities of the City.
John and Mary Conkerton are still fondly remembered by many practitioners throughout Merseyside for their enormous contribution to legal education in Liverpool, initially on the Finals Course at Liverpool Polytechnic (now Liverpool John Moores University) and later the Degree Courses at Liverpool University.
After they both died in 1979, the Conkerton Memorial Fund was established by a charitable trust deed on 9 September 1980. Every few years since then the Conkerton Memorial Lecture has been organised.
We hope to have many members of the legal profession, judiciary, academics and students of Law at the Lecture. Book your place now.
