The Inforrm blog is taking a break from regular posting over Easter. The Senior Courts (High Court, Court of Appeal and Supreme Court) are closed until 29 April 2014. Parliament is not sitting again until 28 April 2014. The Phone Hacking Trial will resume on 22 April 2014. We will have our next “Law and Media Round up” on 28 April 2012.
We will however, continue to have the occasional post over the next two weeks – catching up with some “Case Comments” and with some important news items. As usual, we invite posts from readers on “Media and Law” topics. Contact us via the Inforrm email: firstname.lastname@example.org. And please let us know by email if there are topics which you think we should be covering more (or less).
We have now published over 2,400 posts and have had nearly 2.1 million page views. The Inforrm twitter feed (@Inforrm) now has over 2,300 followers. Thank you again to all our contributors, readers, subscribers and followers.
