Final two events in successful Theory Meets Practice series
Law 20 April 2016
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 BritishBlackMusic.com. 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.
In addition, we hope to collate all videos of previous events in an easy to navigate section of the Centre website soon.
