Howard Kennedy’s human rights practice is focused on high-end and novel work. Our boutique team doesn’t handle routine matters, but is dedicated to high-impact, precedent setting cases of national and international significance. 

With our combination of media and human rights expertise, we help guide our clients through the complexities that exist between free speech and privacy, particularly in the era of social media. 

We advise media organisations, individuals, government organisations and NGOs across a spectrum of human rights and free speech issues.

Most recently, the team has been actively engaged representing women in the #MeToo movement and a supporter of women's rights. We have acted on some of the earliest and most high-profile cases in this space.
