Our Legal Observers (LOs) are mostly lawyers or law students, and are all trained by experienced LOs from Haldane Society. They attend BLM-related protests to monitor the actions of the police, take notes about the protest and offer general legal advice to protesters and members of the public.
LOs will be wearing high visibility vests and will have our latest bustcards with them. These bustcards will give you essential information about the police’s powers, and will offer contact information for a number of trusted law firms.
Below is a list of the upcoming events which we will be attending. Click on the poster to see further details. We will soon have summaries of our reports from previous protest on our LO reports page.
Please contact us if you know of another BLM related protest which you think our LOs will be needed at, or if you would like to become an LO.
