Defamation and privacy: The view from Down Under

Australia is about as far from Oxford as you can get, so why would media law advocates at a summer school here find any relevance in hearing about defamation and privacy in that part of the world? Well, firstly, from what I have read about your program you come from many parts of the world so you seem to have a diverse range of backgrounds and interests. Secondly, we can often learn much more about our own legal systems and the issues they face by comparing and contrasting them with a case study from another jurisdiction. For those reasons, I sincerely hope you find the session interesting and useful.
