Twenty-five years on  from the murder of Stephen Lawrence in 1993 in Eltham, South East London, Imran will discuss his involvement in the case from both a personal and a professional perspective,  and will seek to assess what lessons, if any, have been learned with particular emphasis on issues of diversity, policing and human rights.

He is one of the Founding members of Imran Khan and Partners and is Head of the Criminal Defence, Actions Against the Police and Public Law Departments (Inquests, Judicial Reviews and Public Inquiries).
