“The WG Hart Legal Workshop 2013 will address the array of legal, regulatory and philosophical questions opened by the Leveson Inquiry and Report, and by the subsequent and related reform debates that have fulminated in recent times. Most obviously, this focuses attention on the emergent scheme for press regulation and how this fits in the wider regulatory context. The phone-hacking scandal, the Leveson Inquiry and associated policy debates have ranged far more widely than this and impinge on many aspects of the legal framing of the public sphere. The public sphere, of course, comprises much more than the British mainstream media. Recognising this, the workshop will also seek to address the relevance of current policy debates and legal and regulatory reform for the new, converging and social dimensions of the media landscape. It will also seek to draw on international and comparative perspectives.”
