In co-operation with the Law Society, the Foundation hosted a reception for a delegation of 14 Kazakh judges including a representative from the Supreme Court. Peter Williamson, the Foundation’s Chair, welcomed the delegation and the Foundation’s President, Sir Stanley Burnton, gave a short address on the challenges of maintaining an independent judiciary. This was followed by a lively question and answer session and a drinks reception. The Foundation is grateful to the Law Society for organising this event.
