Sign up for Media Law conference

By Steven | March 13, 2009

Lexis Nexus is running its annual media law conference in Auckland on 17 April 2009. I’ll be chairing it. It covers many of the hot issues in media law, including¬†suppression, contempt, defamation, privacy, and from a range of angles – people involved in the litigation itself, academics analysing the end results, and journalists trying to make sense of it all.

Here’s the line-up:

Obtaining and challenging suppression orders Judge Charles Blakie, John Haigh QC and Garry Gotlieb

Contempt of court (and the Fairfax case) Robert Stewart (from Izard Weston, who represent Fairfax)

Defamation defences (and the Simunovich case) Willy Akel and Tracy Walker (from Simpson Grierson, who represent TVNZ)

Breach of confidence and privacy (and the Mosley and Hosking cases) Ursula Cheer and Rosemary Tobin, Assoc Profs at Canterbury and Auckland law schools

Addressing key challenges in journalism Paul Patrick TVOne news editor, Nevil Gibson, NBR editor-in-chief

The Broadcasting Standards Authority Jim Thomson, TVNZ, and me.
