  • City@6: Tim Otty QC

    Published 01/03/21

    On Monday 1 March we welcomed Tim Otty QC to deliver the third of our exciting new lecture series. In a wide-ranging and thought-provoking talk that drew on his own specific experiences as a lawyer, Tim discussed the role the courts - both here and abroad - can and should play in safeguarding basic liberties and in protecting minorities, the vulnerable and the marginalised, particularly now, in the age of social media, when the scope for misinformation and unchecked abuse of power and influence is so great.
    He used three specific case studies - the rights of prisoners of Guantanomo Bay, homosexuality in Uganda and the 2019 prorogation of Parliament - to demonstrate the crucial importance that the law can make. It was an impassioned plea for our students to enter the law and to make a difference and he ended by quoting Ruth Ginsberg's inspiring advice for young women: “Fight for the things you care about but do it in a way that will lead others to join you.”
