Conference5RB 2008 Launched

24 September 2008

The two years since the last 5RB Conference have seen important developments in media and sports law as the Courts have wrestled with the difficult balance to be struck between the rights of individuals to protect their reputation and privacy and the rights of freedom of expression.

CONFERENCE5RB 2008 will bring together the strands of our barristers’ individual experiences together with guest contributors from the world of journalism and the internet, to consider critically how modern media, privacy and sports laws operate and interrelate.
