City University London announces that Professor Susan Nash, Dean of The City Law School, has been appointed as a specialist adviser to the Parliamentary Joint Committee on Human Rights (JCHR).

Professor Nash will provide legal and policy advice to the Committee for its continuing inquiry into the human rights implications of the UK extradition policy.

The Joint Committee comprises 12 members drawn from the House of Commons and the House of Lords, including leading experts in the field.  Its role is to consider matters of human rights in the UK although it does not take up individual cases.

Professor Nash is a human rights expert who has previously worked with both the British Council and the Council of Europe on, for example, development programmes supporting human rights reform in Turkey.

“Professor Nash’s appointment is in recognition of her standing in the field of human rights law.  Her achievement is a fine example of the University’s commitment to academic excellence and focus on the professions from which our students benefit.”

Professor Paul Curran, Vice-Chancellor, City University London
