PRESS RELEASE
Inaugural Queens’ Distinguished Lecture in Law
Redress Solutions Prize for Academic Excellence
Redress Solutions LL.M Studentship
Queens’ College, University of Cambridge, and Redress Solutions PLC have joined together
to launch the Queens’ College Distinguished Lecture in Law. The inaugural lecture will be
held at Queens’ College on the 15th October 2015. It will be delivered by Baroness Hale of
Richmond, Deputy President of the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom. She will be
speaking on “The Right to Live and the Right to Die”. It is intended that this will become an
annual event, exposing members of the College as well as their distinguished guests to the
most advanced thinking on the law. This is becoming increasingly relevant as London
reinforces its position as the forum of choice for international commercial litigation and
arbitration.
In conjunction with the lecture, Redress Solutions PLC is sponsoring two Redress Solutions
Prizes for academic excellence in Law, to be awarded by the Director of Studies in Law at
Queens’, and which will be presented by the eminent jurist delivering the Lecture. In
addition, Redress Solutions is providing a generous Studentship for Queens’ LLM students.
This will be awarded at the Dinner.
Director of Studies in Law at Queens’ College and Chair of the Faculty of Law at the
University of Cambridge, Professor Richard Fentiman, said “this is a wonderful opportunity
for Queens’ College to further its reputation in the teaching and research of Law. Our
students, alumni and guests will all benefit, I’m sure, from hearing words of wisdom from
such an eminent person as Baroness Hale. We are extremely grateful to Redress Solutions
for making this possible and for their support of excellence in higher education.”
Marius Nasta LL.M, Chief Executive of Redress Solutions PLC and an alumnus of Queens’
College said: “I am proud that my company has associated itself with this series of lectures
and is sponsoring the Redress Solutions Prizes for Academic Excellence as well as the
Redress Solutions Studentship. Personally this enables me to give something back to my old
College. This series of lectures will add to the immense contribution that Queens’ has made
over the centuries to the development of law and to the education of legal academics and
practicing lawyers”.
