The Helena Kennedy Centre for International Justice will be hosting a public lecture on the Investigatory Powers Act. Featuring keynote speaker Martha Spurrier, director of human rights group Liberty.
The lecture will focus on the strengths and weaknesses of the Act, with time at the end of the lecture for a question and answer session with the audience.
The main theme of the lecture will be the powers set out by the Act, with regard to the extent that they encroach on human rights, and whether this is proportionate to the aim of countering the threat of terrorism.
Keynote speaker Martha Spurrier, director of human rights group Liberty will be setting out arguments against the Act. Our second speaker, Jamie Grace, Senior Lecturer in Law at SHeffield Hallam University, will argue in defence of the legislation.
