Lower Sixth students invited to an exhibition from artists on death row

Posted: 21/02/17

Five students from the Lower Sixth attended an incredible event organised by the legal charity Amicus, who help to provide representation for those facing the death penalty in the US. The students were invited to view an exhibition of work from artists currently on death row and then hear both Clive Stafford Smith and barrister Sam Curtis speak on a host of issues including justice, law, society, human rights, citizenship, ethics and art. Clive Stafford Smith, the Legal Director of the human rights organisation Reprieve does not deliver many public talks anymore so our girls had a unique opportunity to hear his thoughts and came back saying he was ‘fascinating’. As all the girls are considering the Law in the future, we are so glad to see them engage with such an opportunity so fully.
