Lawcast 106: Roger Smith, Director of Justice, on civil liberties and human rights.

Today I am talking to Roger Smith OBE a solicitor who has been director of JUSTICE since November 2001. He has been director of legal education and training at the Law Society; director of the Legal Action Group; solicitor to the Child Poverty Action Group and director of West Hampstead Community Law Centre. He is an honorary professor at the University of Kent and a visiting professor at London South Bank University.

Roger Smith explains what Justice does… but we then discuss the concerns raised by Lord Phillips, the former Chief Justice and now senior Law Lord, and the concerns of Sir Ken McDonald, David Davies, former MI5 Chief Stella Rimington and even David Blunkett, a former Home secretary only today,  that our liberties are being eroded needlessly.
