Event Details

Time: 18:00

Venue: The Honourable Society of Gray's Inn, 8 South Square, London WC1R 5ET

The Bingham Centre is delighted that Sir Alan Moses, Former Lord Justice of the Court of Appeal, will be the lecturer at the Annual Tom Bingham Lecture at Gray's Inn on 19 November.

Fountain Court Chambers (the sponsors of the lecture) and the Bingham Centre had little doubt that Sir Alan would be an ideal speaker. He recently retired from the Court of Appeal, where he was an influential force for the rule of law and is now the Chair of the Independent Press Standards Organisation (IPSO). He has chosen as his topic the issue of how judges should respond to the media. And do the press peddle legal myths or realities? Given his previous and current roles, no-one could be more qualified to consider the role of judges in communicating with the public, in correcting misinformation, or in responding to outright attacks.

The Event will be chaired by former High Court judge Sir Nicholas Stadlen
