The Centre for European Legal Studies (CELS) hosts an annual public lecture in honour of Lord Mackenzie-Stuart, the first British Judge to be President of the Court of Justice. Among the eminent scholars of European legal studies invited to give the lecture are Professor Joseph Weiler, former Judge David Edwards of the European Court of Justice, and Advocate-General Francis Jacobs of the European Court of Justice.
The texts of the Mackenzie-Stuart Lectures are published in the Cambridge Yearbook of European Legal Studies.
The 2007 Mackenzie-Stuart Lecture was delivered by the Lord Chancellor and Secretary of State for Justice, Jack Straw, on Thursday 25 October 2007. He spoke about his views on human rights in the 21st century.
