Resource description

Comments on the debate concerning English libel law and the calls for reform particularly by those seeking greater freedom of expression. Suggests that the debate has been dominated by the one-sided perspective of the print media. Observes the existing state of the law and highlights those criticisms of existing law that in the authors' view are: (1) based on errors or misunderstandings; (2) based on misjudgements; and (3) have some substance and are worthy of further consideration. Identifies those areas of libel law which do not warrant reform and those areas which should undergo constructive revision including the costs of proceedings.
