Law School film club, Reel Law, screening of documentary Democracy, 27 November 2018

Leicester Law School screening of documentary on privacy and the messy process of EU law-making.

This compelling film follows the EU’s controversial General Data Protection Regulation from initial conception to enactment in law, charting the contentious negotiations between lobbyists, national governments and the EU institutions, not to mention the impact of Edward Snowden. It provides a unique insight into the often opaque EU legislative procedure and the influence of power in that procedure.

Democracy will appeal to anyone with an interest in EU law, “big data” and mass surveillance, the law’s attempts to keep up with a rapidly changing society and technology and indeed the democratic process itself.

Date and time: Tuesday 27 November, 6pm
Location: Bennett Lower Ground Floor, Lecture Theatre 8 
Film Running Time: 1 hour 40 minutes
The event is free and open to all

The screening will be followed by an informal reception where attendees are welcome to stay for a glass of wine and informal chat after the screening.

This event is generously sponsored by Howes Percival.
