Crook: 'Why Leveson should never have happened'

Tim Crook,  senior lecturer in media law and ethics at the department of Media and Communications at Goldsmiths, University of London, argues in this YouTube film that the Leveson Inquiry should never have taken place.

It was his contribution to the 'After Leveson' conference organised by the Institute of Communications Ethics at the Front Line Club in Paddington last Thursday.

Tim says it was "legally and morally wrong" for the Leveson Inquiry to take place while criminal proceedings against a number of journalists were pending and claims they are now unlikely to get a fair trial.
