The UK Human Rights Blog, which was launched only as recently as March last year, has now had more than 500,000 “hits”. This is a fantastic milestone reached much sooner than expected for this free service written by members of 1 Crown Office Row, co-ordinated by its main author, Adam Wagner.

The Blog was launched with the intention that it would be useful for lawyers and the general public, and that it would, in part, compensate for some of the mischievous and misrepresentative reporting of human rights law. But we never expected it to attract the wide audience that it has.

We now have 1,558 subscribers by email (you too can subscribe for free), 1,065 on Facebook, and 2,991 via Adam Wagner’s account on Twitter. We have also recently updated our introduction to the European Convention on Human Rights and introduced a human rights case table.
