Did the News of the World seek to undermine a murder investigation? This astonishing issue is but one of the topics being discussed tonight. We’ll also be looking at the latest developments in Leveson, the issue of Civil disobedience and the Rule of law, the Sedley v Sumption debate and finally, whether the rank of Queen’s Counsel should be abolished.
On the panel tonight – Gary Slapper, Director of New York University in London, former government lawyer Carl Gardner, author of the Head of Legal Blog and David Allen Green, who practises as a solicitor and writes for The New Statesman, The Lawyer and his own Jack of Kent blog.
