Theory meets practice

The final two events in what has been a very full Theory Meets Practice series took place in March.

First, the Centre for Law, Society and Popular Culture hosted a screening of A Lion’s Trail in conjunction with Kwaku, a former student on the Entertainment Law LLM who is now part of This examined the story of Wimoweh/The Lion Sleeps Tonight under the banner of Culture, Appropriation, Authorship and Copyright

We were delighted to welcome a stellar line up for the presentation and panel discussion on Image Rights in Football. Long time friend of Westminster Law School Daniel Geey was joined by a colleague from Sheridans, Jonny Madill and Pete Hackleton from Saffery Champness for what proved to be a fascinating and insightful session.
