Legal Seminar

The Panel decided that it would be assisted by hearing from academics and practitioners specialising in the areas of law relevant to the Inquiry’s terms of reference. To this end, a seminar was held on 8 June 2011 (‘the seminar’) at which six distinguished speakers were invited to address and take questions from an invited audience drawn from academia, the law, journalism and relevant government departments and NGOs.

A note of the seminar can be found at Annex B of the Detainee Inquiry’s Report. Further information on the seminar, including transcripts of all the sessions, can be found here.
