Without Prejudice

April 7, 2011

Law bloggers Charon QC, David Allen Green and Carl Gardner discuss –

  • the government’s draft Defamation Bill, currently subject to consultation;
  • superinjunctions and so-called “hyperinjunctions”;
  • the Supreme Court’s removal of immunity for expert witnesses in civil proceedings in its Jones v Kaney judgment (and why should judges be immune from being sued?);
  • the ruling of the Grand Chamber of the European Court of Human Rights in Lautsi v Italy, in effect restoring the right of Italy to require crucifixes to be displayed in classrooms;
  • miscarriages of justice, Lord Denning and the landmark BBC programme Rough Justice, and
  • whether mini-pupillages are part of the current internship culture.
