About this event

Join us for the fourth Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Forum of the year, "The Boundaries of Intimate Image Abuse: where next for law reform?" Our keynote speaker, Professor Clare McGlynn QC will be speaking about intimate image abuse and the future of law reform.

  • Doors Open: 5:45 pm
  • Talk: 6:00 pm
  • Q&A: 6:45 pm
  • Drinks Reception: 7:15 pm
  • Finish: 8:30 pm

Professor Clare McGlynn QC (Hon) works closely with politicians, civil society and victims to improve the criminal law, particularly around intimate image abuse, extreme pornography and sexual violence. She has given evidence before the Scottish and UK Parliaments, and most recently to the Parliamentary committee reviewing the Online Safety Bill. She has addressed policy audiences across Europe, Australia, Korea and the US, and worked with social media companies including Facebook, Google and TikTok to develop their policies. In 2019, she was made an honorary QC in recognition of her work championing women’s equality in the legal profession and influencing new criminal laws.

She is a member of Parliament’s Independent Expert Panel which hears appeals and determines sanctions in cases of sexual misconduct and bullying by MPs. She is a co-author of the recently published books Cyberflashing: recognising harms, reforming laws (2021) and Image-Based Sexual Abuse: a study on the causes and consequences of non-consensual nude or sexual imagery (2021).

The talk will be followed by a Q&A session, where attendees will be able to ask the speaker questions.

The event is open to all, including non-members and members of other Inns. Those who have booked to attend remotely will be sent the Zoom link on the day of the event.

Please note this is a free event but booking is essential. Students can also book this event as a qualifying session, if attending in-person, through the Booking Portal.

The video that will play at the start and end of the event is taken from The Art of Losing by The Anchoress, one of the Sunday Times must-hear albums of 2021. “5AM” is the fourth track from the album. It addresses the impact of domestic abuse and sexual assault and is accompanied by a powerful video featuring a collection of real women and men reflecting on the statistics around domestic violence, sexual assault, and baby loss.

Organiser of The Boundaries of Intimate Image Abuse: Where next for law reform?

Lincoln's Inn is one of the four Inns of Court. The Inns of Court have played a fundamental role in preparing students for Call to the Bar and their progress to professional competence as barristers for many centuries.  With that role at its heart, it is nonetheless a very multifarious organisation: a collegiate and educational institution, a membership organisation, a professional body, a landlord, a custodian of historic buildings, a banqueting venue and a tourist attraction.
