B10 : Protecting the Fourth Estate: can the law sustain a free press when states threaten journalistic freedom?

A free society relies on a free press. How can lawyers, law societies and bar councils contribute to the protection, safety and freedom of journalists under threat? This session will examine whistle-blower protection and whether the common law is capable of protecting media freedom when national security is used to justify limiting press freedom.
