Congratulations to the The Bar Human Rights Committee who won the 2008 Sydney Elland Goldsmith Bar Pro Bono Award at this year's Bar Conference for it's Access to Justice in Afghanistan Project.

Mark Muller QC and Brenda Campbell were part of Access to Justice in Afganistan Project, which jointly involved: Garden Court Chambers, 20 Essex Street, Matrix Chambers and Blackstone chambers.

The five year project, completed in May 2008, has provided training for local lawyers, academics, NGOs and students, and sourced, bought and distributed 10,000 legal textbooks. Barristers have also provided training at annual workshops in Kabul, focussing on discrimination, violence against women, and the rule of law.
