Posted on: November 23, 2015 by

For those interested in the legal dispute surrounding the discovery, analysis and reinterment of the bones of Richard III, King of England from 1483-1485 (of Shakespearean “kingdom for a horse” fame), on Saturday barrister Harry Martin will be discussing the issues that arose in the judicial review hearing before the High Court in 2013-2014. Harry, a member of 3 Stone Buildings, worked on the matter with Norman Palmer QC, representing Leicester City Council in the dispute.
