Privacy in the 21st Century Symposium
07 December 2012
The Communications Law Centre, UTS hosted one of year’s most important privacy events. Keynote speaker Lord Justice Leveson set the scene with his unique insights into the historical struggle between press freedom and the right of the individual to privacy, and asked where we might go from here.
Other guests, including Professor George Williams and Malcolm Turnbull, discussed the need for a tort of privacy and its possible impact on a free press. Questions were also raised about recent media inquiries and the options for ensuring the accountability of the news media.
The symposium finally looked to the future as Senator Scott Ludlum and Angelene Falk addressed new and emerging privacy concerns in the digital age.
