The event, Universal Abolition of the Death Penalty, was held from 9-11 October 2014 to mark World Death Penalty Day. Saul Lehrfreund presented on “Judicial Activism and Constitutional Developments Restricting the Use of the Death Penalty”, and shared our experiences on efforts towards the abolition of the death penalty from a legal perspective.
