Contemporary Issues in National Security Law: The Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015

Date: Tuesday 14 April 2015

Time: 18.30 - 19.30

Location: 53-54 Doughty Street, London, WC1N 2LS

Venue: Doughty Street Chambers

Speakers: Judith Farbey QC, Tatyana Eatwell, Tim Moloney QC

CPD: 1

Doughty Street Chambers is delighted to invite you to the first in a series of seminars that will consider contemporary issues in national security law.  The Counter-Terrorism and Security Act 2015 was conceived in response to a fear that persons who have travelled to Syria and Iraq to join ISIL or other proscribed organisations may return to the UK to commit acts of terrorism. The Act received Royal Assent on 12 February 2015 after a swift passage of the Bill through Parliament with little opposition or amendment.

In this seminar, our panel of experts will consider the issues that arise out of:

  • the power to seize travel documents from persons suspected of involvement in terrorism;
  • the powers to exclude persons suspected of being involved in terrorism-related activity abroad from the UK;
  • the imposition of Terrorism Prevention and Investigation Measures on any person issued with a permit to return to the UK.

Time: 18.30 – 19.30

Location: Doughty Street Chambers, 53-54 Doughty Street, London, WC1N 2LS
