Date: Tuesday 28 June 2011 
Time: 6.30-8pm 
Venue:  Sheikh Zayed Theatre, New Academic Building
Speakers: Suzanne Moore, Max Mosley, David Price, Hugh Tomlinson
Chair: Jo Glanville

A public debate to celebrate the launch of the new issue of Index on Censorship magazine, Privacy is dead! Long live privacy. Index editor Jo Glanville chairs a panel featuring Hugh Tomlinson QC, who represents Ryan Giggs, former F1 president Max Mosley and Imogen Thomas' lawyer David Price, who will discuss gagging orders, tabloid intrusion and the right to a private life.

 

· Are injunctions a means to uphold our human rights or an unjust anachronism after the recent Twitter exposés?

· Should Article 10, the right to freedom of expression, trump Article 8, the right to respect for a private life?

· Are celebrities' personal lives fair game?

Suzanne Moore is an award-winning columnist for the Guardian and the Mail on Sunday.  Max Mosley is the former president of Formula One.  David Price QC is the founder of London media law firm David Price Solicitors & Advocatesis.  Hugh Tomlinson QC of Matrix Chambers is a noted specialist in media and information law including defamation, confidence, privacy and data protection.
