As debate over the future direction of libel and privacy law intensified and the Government prepared to launch a review of UK libel laws, this seminar brought together leading voices in the field to consider the operation and impact of the law, evaluate proposed reforms, and discuss the most appropriate way forward.
Following on from the publication of reform proposals by the Guest of Honour, the leading public and constitutional lawyer Lord Lester of Herne Hill QC, discussion reflected conclusions drawn by the Libel Working Group and the issues raised in the Culture, Media and Sport Select Committee inquiry Press Standards, Privacy and Libel.
In addition, the seminar looked at the impact libel law has on open debate - particularly amongst the science community - and how challenges to reform, such as, 'libel tourism', digital media, and costs, can best be answered.
