February news from the Centre.

The big news this month is that Steve Greenfield, Deputy Head of the Westminster Law School and Co-Director of the Centre has been awarded his PhD. This is fantastic news, and well deserved. Well done Dr Greenfield!

Alex Sinclair had his review of the Forbidden Access conference published.

The Film Matters series has concluded for now while we await a date for the King Cnut film, more details to follow when we get this. The series has been a great success, we were particularly pleased with the input from Craig Lapper from the British Board of Film Classification for Dear Censor and Pretty Baby which the students really enjoyed. We are aiming to make Film Matters a regular series with various themes and topics being covered.

Last but not least the Centre welcomed back Professor Christian Armbruester from the Free University of Berlin who visited us as part of the ERASMUS exchange programme. Chris Ellins provides the following report: ‘Christian gave an excellent seminar to a packed room of LLM Entertainment Law students plus invited undergraduates from our Intellectual Property and Entertainment Law modules. His paper entitled ‘A Civil Law Perspective on Merchandising – Celebrity and Image’ was very well received.
