This week’s podcast follows a panel discussion event organised by Hickman and Rose and Matrix Chambers. Since the virus arrived in the UK in February the Government has introduced a number of new criminal offences seeking to ensure compliance with its public health policies. Listen to our panel of the UK’s leading legal and political minds as they discuss the true impact of the Government’s legal response to the pandemic.

Chaired by Matthew Taylor (Chief Executive, RSA), we hear from Lord Macdonald QC (Barrister, Matrix Chambers and former Director of Public Prosecution), Lord Neuberger (Former President of the Supreme Court), Lord Blunkett (Former Home Secretary) and Jenny Wiltshire (Head of Serious and General Crime at Hickman & Rose).
