Annual Law Lecture 2022 : Andrew Skipper 

Speaker: Andrew Skipper, Senior Counsel Chair of Africa Practice, Hogan Lovells

"Global Challenges and Ethical Solutions: What Role for the Twenty-First Century Lawyer?"

In the C/21 lawyers have a fast-developing global role which is taking us well beyond the pure application of law. At the same time, the law itself is becoming more complex, so the need for the legal profession to deliver informed ethical solutions and not just present problems is paramount. Lawyers now find themselves at the centre of a range of complex global issues where they can make a difference for good or for ill. Andrew Skipper has practised as a commercial lawyer for 36 years in the domestic and international market and in the private and public sectors, as well as being heavily engaged in arts and business in Africa. In this lecture he will outline his approach to being a commercial lawyer, and how this links with a number of issues facing the developing world, and Africa in particular. These will include a focus on the need to understand and respect markets and cultures, the impact of demographics and climate change on issues such as the “just transition” in the context of COP 27, issues of diversity and representation, and the commercial opportunities presented by the Africa Continental Free Trade Agreement (AfCFTA). This is a personal view derived from experience.
