This year we have seen groundbreaking revelations including the News of the World phone-hacking scandal, breach of super-injunctions and the continued constant surveillance of celebrities. The balance between privacy and freedom of expression continues to take a spotlight in the media sphere with the press taking every opportunity to secure a story and, celebrities fighting tooth and nail to retain anonymity. The increasing use of social media brings new challenges and the recent breach of a super-injunction via Twitter shows that some users think they are beyond the law.

This topical event allows you to obtain practical and tactical guidance on the boundaries of responsible journalism.


Attending this cutting-edge conference will enable you to:

  • Discuss the News of the World phone hacking scandal and the impact on privacy laws
  • Debate the effectiveness of press regulation and a potential move towards statutory regulation
  • Analyse the liability of Internet Service Providers for libellous comments posted on their website
  • Explore the developments of the internet and the resultant impact on disclosure and anonymity
