Description

Sponsored by the UCL Institute of Human Rights

About the event:
The Rt Hon. Lord Justice Fulford, the Investigatory Powers Commissioner (IPC), has responsibility for reviewing the use of investigatory powers by public authorities, such as intelligence and law enforcement agencies. Following the passing of the Investigatory Powers Act 2016, the IPC has replaced the previous Commissioner system for oversight of the intelligence services and police in terms of their use of investigatory powers. The Investigatory Powers Act has also introduced a new system of judicial approval of warrants for computer inference, interception of communications and bulk data acquisition, which is being developed and overseen by The Rt Hon. Lord Justice Fulford.

About the speaker:
The Rt Hon. Lord Justice Fulford is a serving Lord Justice of Appeal and a former Senior Presiding Judge for England & Wales. Until recently he served as the judge in charge of IT and the Reform Programme, which includes “transferring justice to the cloud”. Previously he served as a High Court Judge (Queen’s Bench Division) and as a judge of the International Criminal Court.
