Nicholas Griffin KC writes about modern slavery and supply chain transparency in the current issue of the I.C.C.L.R

The article, The Modern Slavery Act 2015 and the evolution of supply chain transparency in the UK (I.C.C.L.R. 2024, 35(1), 4-16), was written with Sian Lea, who is the Business and Human Rights Manager at Anti-Slavery International. 

It provides a review of UK law governing modern slavery and the evolution of corporate accountability for transparency of supply chains. It considers the position in 2015, with the world-leading Modern Slavery Act, and subsequently. It looks at significant developments in other jurisdictions, questions whether the UK has fallen behind and suggests a way forward. 

This January issue of the ICCLR is a special issue devoted to modern slavery, following a seminar held at The Inner Temple last year. It was organised by Dr Adaeze Okoye of the University Brighton School of Business and Law, in her role as associate academic bencher of the Inn.
