This seminar provided a timely opportunity to assess the future of libel law in England and Wales as the Government responded to consultation and proposed a revised Defamation Bill. The seminar included a keynote address from the Minister responsible for this area of policy - Rt Hon the Lord McNally.
Informed by the findings and recommendations of the Joint Committee on the Draft Defamation Bill, sessions brought together policymakers with key stakeholders, including representatives from across media, business and the legal sector, to consider how Government could strike the most appropriate balance between freedom of speech and the right to reputation, and assess the most appropriate way forward for policy in this area.
