On 7th June 2018 The PILS Project held a conference, 'Strong Impacts: public interest litigation in action.'  Renowned South African Judge, Justice Edwin Cameron, was the keynote speaker.  It was the first time the human rights lawyer and current Judge of the Constitutional Court of South Africa visited Northern Ireland.  The PILS Project are grateful to Steven McCaffery, Journalist with The Detail, for interviewing Justice Cameron and producing this video interview .  For a copy of Steven's full article click
