Liberty Awards

Lord Bingham was awarded a posthumous lifetime achievement award at Liberty’s Human Rights Awards in 2010 for his contribution to the British judiciary. Karen Monaghan QC, of Matrix Chambers, was voted human rights lawyer of the year, and Young Legal Aid Lawyers won the human rights young person of the year award.

Shami Chakrabarti, director of Liberty, said: “In a winter of so much bad news, this ceremony is to remind us of the outstanding efforts of so many people to protect hard-won rights and freedoms in Britain.”
