“In Conversation with Mark Stephens”
Mark Stephens, CBE
Partner at Finers Stephens Innocent
The recent controversy surrounding Wikileaks and Julian Assange has raised many questions about freedom of information and the use of European arrest warrants. Mr Assange has been described as both a “hi-tech terrorist” and “beacon of information freedom” and his cases have wide ranging implications within the law and society as a whole.
In this unique ‘conversation’, Mark Stephens, partner at Finers Stephens Innocent, will be discussing a wide variety of topics including the law surrounding freedom of information and the European arrest warrant.
A specialist in international comparative media law and regulation, Mark Stephens has represented clients throughout the world. Described by the ‘Law Society Gazette’ as “the patron solicitor of previously lost causes”, it is this reputation for creativity with law that leads clients to his door.
The conversation with Mark Stephens will be chaired by Professor Peter Watson, Solicitor Advocate.
