Lord Falconer to face grilling at Press Gazette law conference

Journalists and media lawyers have a unique opportunity to put Lord Chancellor Charles Falconer in the spotlight next week at the Press Gazette and Newspaper Society Media Law conference.

Falconer (pictured) has huge power over journalists with a remit which includes the legal system and Freedom of Information.

Those who wish to grill him in person will have to buy a ticket for the day-long conference.

But those unable to go can also nominate a question on the Press Gazette Editor's Blog.

Other speakers at the conference, which is intended to give journalists a complete update on media law issues, include Times legal manager Alastair Brett, Guardian readers' editor Siobhain Butterworth and Andrew Caldecott QC.

The day includes an entertaining debate on privacy featuring star panellists and chaired by Clive Anderson.

The event takes place at The Reuters Building, Canary Wharf, London, on Thursday 17 May.
