The University of Strathclyde Law Clinic was delighted to be joined by Jennifer Dalziel, a solicitor at the Scottish Women’s Rights Centre, to mark International Women’s Day 2017.
Gender Based Violence and the Law in 2017: a Perspective from a Frontline Service#IWD #BeBoldForChange
Geplaatst door University of Strathclyde Law Clinic op woensdag 8 maart 2017
The theme for this year’s International Women’s Day was #BeBoldForChange. The SWRC (a partnership project between Rape Crisis Scotland, the University of Strathclyde and the Legal Services Agency) is a bold, innovative and much-needed service ensuring women in Scotland who have or are experiencing gender based violence are able to access timely and appropriate legal advice and information. It was therefore fitting to explore the impact of law on women in 2017 through the SWRC’s perspective.
Jennifer has been employed by the SWRC since its establishment in 2015 and has extensive knowledge on the issues facing women in Scotland who have experienced gender-based violence. Reflecting on her experiences, Jennifer discussed recent developments in case law and legislation relating to gender-based violence, suggesting how this can be used to effect positive change in clients’ lives. Furthermore, Jennifer explored the direction the law should take in order to promote women’s rights in relation to gender-based violence.
