Established by former minister The Rt Hon David Curry in 2010, The Parliamentary Review’s release is now a key fixture in the political calendar.

1st Citizen Lawyers features alongside the Prime Minister and a small number of outstanding organisations in a document that looks back on the year in the legal sector and Westminster. The main aim of the Review is to showcase best practice as a learning tool to the public and private sector.

Across all policy areas, The Parliamentary Review is sent to over half a million leading policy makers, stakeholders in industry and other relevant individuals. The articles in the Review act as both a blueprint for success and a template for reform.

The Prime Minister commented that this year’s Parliamentary Review follows a significant year in British politics and this is reflected in the articles from leading journalists and best practice representatives alike.

In the Parliamentary Review, Fraz Wahlah, the CEO of 1st Citizen Lawyers, uses his early experiences of activism for democracy, rule of law, and human rights in Pakistan to question whether the government and our society have turned away from Britain’s founding values especially after the Brexit Referendum – urging Britain to become a beacon of human rights, both at home and abroad.

 

The Prime Minister’s former cabinet colleague, Sir Eric Pickles, Chairman of the Review, said “it has never been more important for government to hear the views of business and the public sector in a constructive forum. It is also a vital time to share best practice and progress.

 

The Parliamentary Review’s executive director Daniel Yossman concurred, saying “1st Citizen Lawyers and other hardworking organisations from across the country have come together to make the Review possible.
Sharing knowledge and insight with both peers and government is essential work and I am delighted that this year’s Review will reach every corner of the British economy.

It’s always a real joy to hear from policy makers who tell me that something they have read in the Review has had an effect on their thinking.

It is my belief that innovation is contagious, if only it is given the platform to spread. It is the Review’s purpose to provide this platform and I am confident we are fulfilling it.
