The years essay title was: Is human rights law relevant in combating poverty and social injustice?.
Law Society president Andrew Holroyd said the standard of the entries for the competition remained very high. Lawyers have a proud tradition of fighting for human rights across the world, improving access to justice and alleviating the suffering of people less fortunate than them. This competition is a very fitting legacy for Graham Turnbulls commitment to human rights work.
