Cris McCurley kindly delivered the inaugural lecture on 9 March 2020, in the Moot Court Room of Westminster Law School, for International Women's Day 2020.
Cris has very kindly agreed to permit us to make her excellent and motivational lecture 'Domestic Abuse and Legal Practice Through A Feminist Law Lens' freely accessible on this platform.
For this, we are incredibly grateful.
Thank you also to Westminster Law School's Dr Harriet Samuels for making this MP4 recording possible.
