Date 14/10/2014

Seminar Details The effect of the Defamation Act 2013 will be to create and foster radical differences between the media law of Scotland and that of England and Wales. Will Scotland replace London as a libel forum shopper’s dream destination? What can and can’t you say on air, in print and in social media?
