The Bar Council is seeking nominations for one (1) appointment to the LCA Business and Human Rights Committee (BHRC).
The Law Council’s Business and Human Rights Committee was established by the Executive in September 2014. It was formed to develop a policy focus in the emerging field of business and human rights law, consider how the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (the Guiding Principles) can be implemented by Australian law firms, and raise awareness about the Guiding Principles for the legal profession.
Items on the Business and Human Rights Committee agenda include:
The Committee typically meets 3 – 4 times per year, with one face to face meeting, and the others by telephone conference. Additionally, the Committee shares information regularly by email.
The Bar’s protocol for nomination and appointment of Vic Bar members to external bodies can be viewed here. You are encouraged to provide a detailed expression of interest, which should identify any relevant areas of experience or expertise. This will assist the Bar Council to select the best candidate for the position.
Please forward your expression of interest to Miranda Tulloch at firstname.lastname@example.org. The closing date for EOIs is 4:00pm, Monday, 4 October, 2021.
