The Judicial System in a Modern Democracy

At the invitation of the British High Commission in Nicosia, and in conjunction with Public Administration International (PAI), the Slynn Foundation held a virtual seminar for the judiciary and legal profession, engaging with each group over half a day.

Slynn Foundation Trustee, The Rt. Hon. Sir Stephen Irwin, chaired presenters from the senior judiciary of England and Wales, and leading specialist members of the legal profession who discussed topics including Case Management, Listings, Commercial Courts, Wellbeing and Vulnerable Witnesses, and shared their extensive knowledge and experience with an audience from the Judiciary and members of the legal profession. The sessions were well received and interaction between delegates and speakers resulted in valuable exchanges regarding current systems and new developments.

We would like to thank our hosts at the British High Commission, colleagues at PAI and our speakers:

The Rt Hon. Sir Stephen Irwin (Chair and speaker)
