Rule of Law
Proactively advancing the Rule of Law worldwide
The Bingham Centre was founded in 2010 by the British Institute of International and Comparative Law, to take forward the vision of The Rt Hon Lord Bingham of Cornhill KG; the pre-eminent UK judge of his generation, who crowned his judicial career by leaving us arguably the best account of what the Rule of Law means in practice and why it is so important in any civilised society
It was an inspiring vision then, with the Rule of Law coming under increasing strain.
