Joshua very successfully chaired an event run by Leigh Day and One Crown Office Row, seeking views from a distinguished panel talking Brexit and the future for Human Rights. He provided a challenging session for the panel members, taking them to the White Paper on Brexit which had been published that very afternoon. Chair and speakers had excellent questions to ask, thoughtful answers to give and Joshua finished the session garnering around 20 questions from the audience and getting thought provoking answers to almost all of them before the end of the seminar. It was an excellent evening, well brought together and compered by the Chair. We are hoping for a return match in a year’s time.
