'Window-dressing' in the COVID-19 pandemic: The troubling story behind the rainbows in the windows has been published in our Lacuna Magazine. The author, Amanda Kowalczyk, who is currently studying part-time on our LLM in Advanced Legal Studies, won Lacuna's 2021 Warwick Law School Writing Competition for her story about the impact of the Covid lockdown on children.
This new podcast asks what access to Covid-19 vaccines shows us about global health inequalities, why the at-risk are being neglected and how young people are being affected. Dr Sharifah Sekalala and Belinda Rawson have compiled the series to explore the human rights issues that have evolved, and which have been exacerbated, during the pandemic.
Sir Howard Morrison QC has been appointed an honorary professor at Warwick Law School. In his new role he will be teaching on the Law School's undergraduate and postgraduate International Criminal Law modules. He will also be an invaluable contributor to other courses including practical advocacy. Lacuna Magazine has interviewed Judge Morrison about his extensive law career and his experience as a judge in the International Criminal Court, asking what advice he has for today's law students.
To mark 12 months since the global pandemic was declared, when the UK, and many other countries around the world, went into lockdown, this collection of stories investigates how the pandemic is affecting communities around the world. The articles are written by Warwick staff and students, some of which studied on our Global Health Law module.
In 2020, as the world was getting to grips with life in lockdown, we launched a writing competition for students at Warwick Law School, the home of Lacuna. We are delighted to share our four winners, who have each created stories we are proud to publish.
We are very excited to announce the winners of the 2020/21 Lacuna Writing Competition. We were impressed by the number and standard of the submissions. Each submission is worthy of praise and the competition has shown a real talent for storytelling in the Law School which is fantastic to see.
