This workshop will examine the legal issues raised by Lord Justice Leveson’s recently published Report into the Culture, Practices, and Ethics of the Press, triggered by the phone hacking scandal at the News of the World.As pressure mounts on the government to implement the proposals for reform of press regulation, a roundtable of experts in media law scholars will assess the legal issues raised by the Report, including the role of the new regulator, the relationship between press and politicians, data protection, and the public interest.

The workshop will cut through the political rhetoric surrounding the debate and offer an indepth legal analysis of the principles underpinning the proposed reforms, in order to provide a set of fresh contributions to the debate on press regulation in the UK.
