CPA/CLA: LAWYERS, PARLIAMENTARIANS AND THE RULE OF LAW
This webinar will highlight long-term policies and strategies for effective scrutiny and preservation of the Separation of Powers for parliaments to function effectively under the Rule of Law. The speakers will consider how lawyers and parliamentarians can cooperate for the good of the citizens of the Commonwealth and beyond, their respective roles in properly holding governments to account, the variety of challenges in post-pandemic democracies, and how we can share their commitments to maintaining an independent and effective legislature.
