VB Live: Judicial Independence – a Public Talk by Robert Spano, President of the ECtHR

In his first public talk since taking over the presidency of the European Court of Human Rights, Judge Robert Spano speaks about „The Principle of Judicial Independence and the Democratic Virtues of Human Rights Law.“ The talk will be followed by questions from the online audience, chaired by iCourts Director, Professor Mikael Rask Madsen.

This event is a collaboration between iCourts – Centre of Excellence for International Courts at the University of Copenhagen’s Faculty of Law and Verfassungsblog, a journalistic and academic forum of debate on topical events and developments in constitutional law and politics.

The live stream will take place May 29th at 14:00 CET.

Following the talk, the audience will have the opportunity to ask questions through the chair by tweeting their questions to iCourts (@iCourts_jur) using the hashtag #AskSpano.

Update: a recording of the talk can be watched here.
