On 24th February 2015 we officially launched the new Centre for Law and Information Policy at the Institute of Advanced Legal Studies with an academic workshop on ‘information flows and dams’, featuring a range of leading scholars in the field, and an evening lecture by Timothy Pitt-Payne QC, barrister at 11KBW, specialist in information rights.

IALS buildingWe are now sharing some of the materials online: video of Timothy Pitt-Payne’s lecture asking ‘Does Privacy Matter?’, a selection of tweets, presentation slides from the afternoon workshop, photographs, drawings by Isobel Williams, and guest posts by the speakers.

If you are interested in the Centre’s themes, and would like to know more and to be kept informed of future activities, please email judith.townend@sas.ac.uk. Please also get in touch with ideas for what we might usefully do, to contribute to a fast-growing area of research on information law and policy and to support the work of others in the field.
