Law, Society and Popular Culture

Danilo Mandic and Stephanie Roberts represent the Centre for Law Society and Popular Culture

5 March 2009

Danilo Mandic presented a paper ‘Copyright Law and Intangibility: ideas, creativity and technology’ at the Socio Legal Studies Association annual conference hosted by the Bristol Law School at the University of the West of England.

Stephanie Roberts was invited by the Criminal Cases Review Commission to give a presentation at a conference they organised on the problems those who are factually innocent have in overturning their convictions. The presentation was on research conducted on the Court of Appeal’s approach to factual innocence appeals. She also took part on a panel discussion of these issues with Lord Justice Hooper.
