We are delighted to announce that Professor Rachael Mulheron QC (Hon) has agreed to give the keynote at our upcoming Conference5RB 2022.

Rachael is a legal academic and Professor of Tort Law and Civil Justice at Queen Mary University of London. From 2009 to 2018, she was a member of the Civil Justice Council where she served on the Working Group on what became the Defamation Act 2013, and also served as well as a member of the Working Group which prepared a report for the implementation of the Leveson Enquiry’s recommendation for ‘Costs Protection for Defamation and Related Claims.’ Rachael has written extensively about defamation and privacy as part of her popular text, Principles of Tort Law (2nd edn, Cambridge University Press, 2020). Since 2004, her public engagement work has focussed particularly on collective or class action jurisprudence. Currently, she is very interested in the potential impact of the Supreme Court’s decision in Lloyd v Google LLC. She was sworn in as an honorary Queen’s Counsel in November 2021.
