Countdown to the Election: Elections and free speech: the protection of political expression


In 2015, Matrix created a series of free legal briefings addressing election law issues in the run up to the UK General Election.

You can download the first in the series below. It provides an overview of what constitutes ‘political expression’, and why and the extent to which it is protected. Many of the issues identified in this Briefing Note will be explored in greater detail in the subsequent 5 briefings.
