Lancaster Law School’s Centre for Law and Society organised the first ever public lecture to be held in the stunning surroundings of the new Civil Justice Centre in Manchester this week. The lecture on March 11 was chaired by The Honourable Mr Justice Ernest Ryder.

The topic was a suitable one for such a venue as Professor David Sugarman of Lancaster University spoke on Legal Buildings and Englishness in the context of the most modern civil court complex in Europe, whilst Professor Schulze gave an historical perspective on THE SYMBOLISM OF LAW.

The lecture was to celebrate the appointment of Professor Reiner Schulze, as an Honorary Professor at Lancaster University. He is also Professor at Münster University and one of Europe's foremost scholars of legal history and European Private Law.

The winners of this year’s Lawyers Aware competition was also announced. This is a competition organised by Lancaster students in which teams from Law Schools compete in a business simulation game.
