Fighting For The Rights Of Other People To Create A Fairer World: Louise Hooper, Barrister, Garden Court Chambers

In our first episode of the new season, I catch up with Louise Hooper, an established public law, human rights and migration barrister. Her practice over the last 20 years has involved a focus on human rights, equality and dignity.
She views strong commitment to and enforcement of universal human rights standards as fundamental to the rule of law and she is committed to holding those responsible for breaching the human rights of others to account. She has particular expertise in cases involving child, refugee and migrant rights, sex, gender, LGBTI+, trafficking and detention.
