Your input needed – Revised Business and Human Rights Survey
The International Bar Association (IBA) in partnership with the Law Council of Australia is continuing to work towards developing a series of tools to assist lawyers improve their knowledge of business and human rights. In September and October 2016, a survey was launched to gain more information from law firm lawyers, barristers and in-house lawyers to identify the starting points for the training.
The IBA and the Law Council have decided to relaunch the survey to obtain more responses. Alongside the re-launch of the survey, facts sheets are being released containing details on the relevance of business and human rights for Australian lawyers.
The fact sheets and surveys can be accessed at the following links:
Feedback is being requested on the survey by 17 March 2017.
Additionally, the IBA has just launched a project web page for the training program. More details on the project, its objectives and the materials being prepared can be found at: http://www.ibanet.org/LPRU/Business-and-Human-Rights-for-the-Legal-Profession.aspx.
