CMG Cunningham Dickey Partner Michael Robinson welcomes Her Honour Judge McCaffrey to Law Society House

CMG Cunningham Dickey Partner Michael Robinson welcomes Her Honour Judge McCaffrey to Law Society House

On 9 December 2016 CMG Cunningham Dickey partner, Michael Robinson,  in his role as former President and Member of the Council of Law Society of Northern Ireland and as Head of the United Kingdom Delegation to the Council of the Bars and Law Societies of Europe (CCBE), welcomed Her Honour Judge McCaffrey to Law  Society House. 

Judge McCaffrey gave a lecture, to a large audience of lawyers and other interested parties, on access to justice which is the recognised fundamental right of citizens, to access and enforce rights through the courts. These rights are widely under attack, because of financial constraints and pressure caused by international strife and terrorism and the need for more robust governmental intervention, not only in United Kingdom but in virtually every country in Europe and worldwide. This was one of 32 similar events taking place in cities throughout Europe, organised in conjunction with CCBE, in celebration of World Human Rights Day and European Lawyers Day.
