Law students: Westminster Law Review - Panel Discussion on 8 March

Law 6 March 2013

The Westminster Law Review is hosting a Question Time-style topical panel discussion on March 8, 2013, at 7-9:00pm in the Old Cinema.

The panellists are: Dr Radha D'Souza of Westminster Law School; Dr Sean Hamill of the Birkbeck Sports Business Centre; James Welch, the Legal Director of civil liberties campaign group Liberty; Youseff Taha, a BBC Journalist; and Leon Ward, a Westminster law student and Youth Trustee of Plan UK.

Some of the questions that are likely to come up are:

  • Should taxpayers money be diverted from aid to the military;
  • With football TV rights, What's the point of debt limits?
  • Does the media undermine the presumption of innocence?
  • Are Universities a business first and academic institution second?
  • Is security intelligence more important than justice?

Westminster Law Review is an academic journal, founded and completely run by law students. The Question Time discussion is moderated by PhD Student and Editor-in-Chief, Sherif Elgebeily.
