Challenges of Representation in Law and Politics-Sarah Sackman (Francis Talyor Building)

by | Sep 25, 2015

This seminar will explore what it means to “represent” a client in court in public law litigation. What are the strengths and limitations of representation and how does representing individuals or groups in the legal context compare with representing residents in political campaigns. Does public law or local politics afford individuals a greater voice in the decisions affecting their lives or is there a danger, particularly where the people being represented are marginalised or vulnerable, that the voice of the advocate or political representative will predominate.
