LEVESON INQUIRY:
CULTURE, PRACTICE
AND ETHICS OF THE PRESS

Rights and Responsibilities of the Press

Lord Justice Leveson held a series of seminars in October 2011 to set the matters that the Inquiry is looking at into context and to provide a wide range of perspectives on the issues. The seminars were attended by an invited audience including editors and journalists from all the main national newspapers, academics, regulators, lawyers and those who feel they have been treated unfairly by the press. There were short presentations on the key issues, but most of each seminar was discussion among the invited audience.

“The Rights and Responsibilities of the press” looked at the importance of a free press and the role of a free press, as well as considering issues around what the ‘public interest’ means and how it can be assessed and whether there is a shared sense of journalistic ethics.

This event was held from 2.00 – 5.30pm on Thursday 6 October in the QEII Conference Centre in Westminster.
