Inforrm: End of Summer Break and Media Cases Listed for Michaelmas Legal Term

The Inforrm summer break ends today. It has, perhaps, not been much of a summer  in England and not much of a break – with regular postings over the past two months. However, the Michaelmas legal term began on Thursday so we will be resuming weekly round ups and “term time” posting from today.

We had “Summer Media and Law Round Ups” on 3 August and 1 September and a Research and Resources Round Up  on 3 September.

We draw attention to two important media law cases in which judgment was handed down over the summer:

We are aware of the following media law cases due which are due to be heard in the courts of England and Wales in the Michaelmas term

  • Umayor v Nwalcamma 12 October 2015 (time estimate, 3 days)
  • Wilkes v Wilshaw 23 November 2015 ((time estimate, 2 days)
