Former BBC legal broadcaster lectures at UCS

Lord Phillips was the Chancellor of Essex University and a well-known legal broadcaster on the BBC.

Atul Shah, Senior Lecturer at Suffolk Business School, UCS said “Lord Phillips gave a passionate lecture on a highly topical subject Ethical Finance. Our MBA students were inspired to have a speaker of vast experience, achievements and wisdom. Suffolk has many experts who are keen to share their knowledge with our students and we welcome them.”

Karen Hinton, MBA student at UCS, said “It was incredibly interesting to hear from Lord Phillips about how the world of business has changed over the 50 years since he first started working in a law firm in Sudbury. We had some illuminating discussions about morality and ethics in business, and the issue of ensuring that business fits within the morality of the society in which it is based. We also discussed tax avoidance and how we can be ethical business people in the future. The students in the room were a range of full-time and part-time postgraduate students, and those of us who work were able to apply some of the discussions to our own professional areas. It was useful to be able to see how the academic work we do in class relates to the global business world, but also the policy and legislation that goes through UK government.”
