A specialist team of barristers from Five Raymond Buildings (the media, entertainment and human rights chambers) have come together to write this timely consideration of the rapidly developing law of privacy in England and Wales.

The book considers how the law protects the publication of personal information without undermining the fundamental principle of freedom of expression. Although intended as a practitioners' guide to the law, it includes a consideration of comparative and international jurisprudence, as well as leading academic writings on the subject, in order to elaborate the principles upon which privacy rights are based. These may helpfully guide the development of English law in the years ahead.

At the heart of the book is an explanation of existing causes of action which may be used to protect personal privacy and practical advice on defences and remedies that may be available. It is recognized that recent legislation, most notably the Data Protection Act 1998 and the Human Rights Act 1998, has had a significant impact on the law in this area and full consideration is given to their application. A vast range of case law is analysed, including Campbell v MGN, Peck v UK

The Law of Privacy and the Media is essential reading for all those who act for or against the media, as well as all those with a general interest in the subject. The inclusion of the second cumulative supplement in this set brings the complete work up to date to August 2005.

  • The Second Supplement wsa published in January 2006
