Leigh Day presents, 'Haven’t you heard?', a podcast for anyone interested in human rights issues and the role the law plays in enabling positive change. In each episode we sit down with a special guest to discuss a topic close to their heart. Whether that’s former member of the Communards and now vicar, Richard Coles discussing LGBT rights, or Dawn Butler MP and her fight against the perceived institutional racism of the Home Office over the Windrush scandal. With the help of a Leigh Day lawyer we unpick each subject, exploring the impact on people's lives, the role the legal system plays in addressing these issues and the action we can take as individuals to combat injustice. 'Haven’t you heard?' is a conversational, accessible exploration of important issues affecting people's human rights. You do not need to be a lawyer to listen, enjoy and participate.
