UCL IAS Lies: Defamation - A Roundtable on Lies and the Law
22 March 2018, 6:30 pm–8:30 pm
Room D103, 25 Gordon Street, First floor (above Gordon's cafe UCLU)
As part of this year's research theme on 'Lies', the UCL Institute of Advanced Studies will be hosting a panel discussion on the present and future of defamation law. How can the law best protect rights of speech and of privacy in a digital age? Has the Defamation Act of 2013 allowed for the publication of truths, opinions honestly held, or speech in the public interest? How has a new standard of harm respected the rights of the claimants and defendants in practice?
- Dr Alex Mills (UCL Laws)
- Professor Rachael Mulheron (Queen Mary Law)
- Robert Sharp (Head of Campaigns, English PEN)
- Dr Judith Townend (Sussex Law)
The discussion will be hosted by Harry Eccles-Williams, Associate at Mischon de Reya.
