Alan Rusbridger on libel, phone-hacking and Wikileaks at City University tonight

City University has another interesting journalism-related event tonight - Guardian editor Alan Rusbridger delivering the Anthony Sampson lecture.

With the Draft Defamation Bill currently out to public consultation (that closes on 10 June) - Rusbridger's lecture is topicly called: 'Libel, the long slow road to reform'. He is also expected to give a "sideways take" on phone-hacking and Wikileaks.
