42 Bedford Row invite you to their 2017 Annual Lecture on Thursday 28th September 2017 at 18.00pm:
Followed by a drinks reception where you will get the opportunity to meet the speakers and members from our employment team.
42 Bedford Row are delighted to announce that Professor Alan Bogg will deliver our 2017 Annual Lecture.
Inspired by recent successes in cases such as the Unison challenge to employment tribunal fees and the Uber litigation, Professor Bogg considers the prospects for a progressive common law constitution at work and argues that it is time for workers and their lawyers to think afresh about the common law as a progressive strategy. Given the prospects of Brexit and the removal of EU law as a constraint on workplace injustice, this may countenance a new constitutional role for the common law as a source of workers’ rights.
