    'Mental Health and the Law' - Richard Martin: CULS Lecture (audio)

    'Mental Health and the Law' - Richard Martin: CULS Lecture (audio)

    Richard Martin spoke about "Mental Health and the Law" on Monday 2 March 2020 at the Faculty of Law, as a guest on the regular Cambridge University Law Society (CULS) speaker programme.

    As many Law students apply and compete for vacation schemes and training contracts, concerns surrounding work-life balance and mental wellbeing in the City are ever pertinent.

    Richard Martin studied law at St Catharine’s College, Cambridge before specialising in employment law. He was a partner at Gouldens/Jones Day and then at Speechly Bircham where he sat on the management committee. In 2011, Richard suffered a severe mental illness that left him hospitalised and in lengthy recovery. He is now a leading campaigner and advocate around mental health, within the legal profession and more broadly, in the UK and internationally. He provides extensive training, co-chairs the Lord Mayor’s This is Me campaign and runs the Mindful Business Charter. In 2018 he published a memoir of his illness and recovery - This too will pass - Anxiety in a Professional World.

    His talk aims at providing practical strategies, based on his own experience in the legal world, so that students can know the right questions to ask of potential employers and ourselves to stay healthy.

    On 21 January 2020, CULS hosted a debate on the proposition "In defence of Foakes v Beer", which featured Dr Janet O'Sullivan and Mr William Day, chaired by Dr Jonathan Morgan.

    This is the central question posed by the seminal contract case of Foakes v Beer, and a question which generations of law tripos students have had to grapple with.

    This event was designed to enrich the contract law tripos module and was particularly aimed at allowing Part IB students to supplement their lecture notes and further reading.
