The lecture will be delivered by S Chelvan, a leading barrister at No 5 Chambers, who has an international reputation in the field of asylum claims based on sexual or gender identity. His DSSH model, used to assist the determination of LGBTI refugee claims, is now endorsed by various organisations, including the UN High Commissioner for Refugees. The lecture is organised by the Law Society and the Bar Council in association with Stonewall, InterLaw Diversity Forum, and the Bar Lesbian and Gay Group.
