“Everyone has the right to freedom of expression.
Everyone has the right to freedom of peaceful assembly.”
Distinguished Academic Lawyer, Professor Sir David Williams, is visiting Nottingham Trent University on Wednesday 6 December 2006 to deliver a lecture “Public Order and Freedom of Expression”.
Sir David’s lecture will be concerned with both the traditional law and principles relating to freedom of assembly and with the impact of new legislation and new responses with regard, for instance, to anti-terrorism, to race and religion, and to new forms of protest. It will involve an inquiry into many pressing issues of legal, political and social concern.
Sir David has taught at the Universities of Nottingham and Oxford and has served on many Royal Commissions, government advisory groups, councils and committees (including Council on Tribunals, the Royal Commission on Environmental Pollution, the Commission on Energy and the Environment, and the Clean Air Council). Knighted in 1991, he is an honorary Queen’s Counsel and was President of Wolfson College, Cambridge, for twelve years where he was Vice-Chancellor for seven years (1989-1996).
This event will be held from 18.30-19.30 on Wednesday 6 December 2006 in the Lecture Theatre of Nottingham Law School’s Belgrave Centre, Nottingham Trent University, Chaucer Street, Nottingham.
