This term's speakers practice across areas including international criminal law, international humanitarian law, international human rights law, environmental law, climate-conscious investment, and the regulation of big data.

The Cambridge Pro Bono Project is proud to be hosting a panel discussion on big data and the challenges and benefits it presents for democracy.

The panel will feature:
