Lawyers in Bird & Bird’s Madrid office have committed to the Madrid Local Government’s Know Your Laws programme
(Conoce tus leyes), which aims to help immigrants living in the city understand their rights and obligations.
On Saturday 11 February 2012, six of our lawyers, Lucia Rodriguez
, Laura Sanchez Heredero, Teresa Mercadal Menchaca, Fidel Porcuna, Javier F. Samaniego
and Enrique Rivas
gave a three hour seminar on the Spanish Constitution and Fundamental Rights in three different 'Centres for Integration' in Madrid.
This was the sixth time our lawyers have dedicated their time and the seminar attracted around 300 attendees of varying nationalities. The topic generated significant interest and debate and there were opportunities for all participants to contribute to the discussion.
