Regular Newsletter

We would like to stimulate a members' discussion FORUM. Do contact us if you are interested in setting of some discussions through this web site. We have the templates ready but just need some interested members prepared to put in the time. A forum could help you meet other Solicitors who are interested in international human rights issues, exchange ideas and share knowledge and experience with them.
