David Wolfe QC: What Makes a Good Self Regulator of the Press? Interpreting the Royal Charter on Press Regulation
Followed by a panel discussion chaired by Damian Tambini
9 June, 5.30pm,Room LG.03,New Academic Building
Press regulation is an ongoing issue for the UK, two and a half years after the Leveson report called for reform, in the wake of the phone-hacking scandal which led to the closure of the News of the World. This debate marks the first of a series of public consultation events across the UK to develop the standards and processes the Panel should use in considering whether applications for recognition from potential regulators meet the criteria set out by the Leveson report. David Wolfe and the panel will discuss the essential criteria for effective self-regulation of the press, and priorities going forward.
