Personal Data as an asset:Design and incentive alignments in a Personal Data Economy

19th February 2018
Personal Data as an asset:Design and incentive alignments in a Personal Data Economy

Event Time: 17:30

Speaker:  Professor Irene Ng, Director of the International Institute for Product and Service Innovation and the Professor of Marketing and Service Systems at WMG, University of Warwick

Panel Discussants: Perry Keller, King's College London and John Sheridan, National Archives

Chair:  Dr Nora Ni Loideain, Director and Lecturer in Law, Information Law & Policy Centre, Institute of Advanced Legal Studies

Despite the World Economic Forum (2011) report on personal data becoming an asset class  the cost of transacting on personal data is becoming increasingly high with regulatory risks, societal disapproval, legal complexity and privacy concerns.

Professor Irene Ng contends that this is because personal data as an asset is currently controlled by organisations. As a co-produced asset, the person has not had the technological capability to control and process his or her own data or indeed, data in general. Hence, legal and economic structures have been created only around Organisation-controlled personal data (OPD).

This presentation will argue that a person-controlled personal data (PPD), technologically, legally and economically architected such that the individual owns a personal micro-server and therefore have full rights to the data within, much like owning a PC or a smartphone, is potentially a route to reducing transaction costs and innovating in the personal data economy. I will present the design and incentive alignments of stakeholders on the HAT hub-of-all-things platform (https://hubofallthings.com).

Admission is free but advanced booking required.

Event Time: 6:30-8:30pm

Venue: Oliver Thompson Lecture Theatre

The Dean of The City Law School, Professor Carl Stychin, is pleased to host a lecture by the distinguished human rights barrister Martha Spurrier

About the speaker
Martha joined Liberty as Director in May 2016. She arrived from Doughty Street Chambers, where she specialised in defending access to justice and the rights of women, children and disabled people. She acted for bereaved families seeking answers after loved ones died in state care, represented victims of rape, domestic violence and trafficking who were failed by the police, brought claims on behalf of prisoners and immigration detainees who had been mistreated in custody and challenged attempts to curb press freedom, privacy and protest rights.

In 2015 Martha co-founded the ‘Act for the Act’ campaign, which put posters on trains, buses and billboards across the country telling the stories of men, women and children who had used the Human Rights Act when things went wrong in their lives.

Martha was previously a lawyer at the mental health charity, Mind, and at the Public Law Project.

About the Speaker

Professor Van Praagh is Full Professor at McGill University in Montreal, where she has taught and researched since 1993.  She served as Associate Dean (Graduate Studies) from 2007-2010. Professor Van Praagh’s substantive areas of research and expertise are primarily children and law, religion and law, legal education and the private law of civil wrongs. Within each area, she adopts a methodological approach grounded in legal pluralism, a sensibility to identity-based narrative and critique, and a particular emphasis on literary sources and style. She recently co-edited, with McGill colleague Helge Dedek, a book collection (Stateless Law: Evolving Boundaries of a Discipline, 2015) in which her own chapter focuses on teaching, learning, and responding to the legacy of Residential Schools for Canada’s aboriginal children.
 
Professor Van Praagh is a past president (2013-2014) of the Canadian Association of Law Teachers. She clerked for The Right Honourable Brian Dickson, Chief Justice of Canada, from 1989 to 1990. She holds a B. Sc. (with High Distinction) (1986) and an LL.B. (with Honours) (1989) from the University of Toronto, and an LL.M. (1992) and J.S.D. (2000) from Columbia University.  Her doctoral dissertation was entitled “Follow the Children: Identity, Integrity, Learning and Law”.

Lesson from Grenfell Tower: inequality and housing need, the Giant that still divides us

23rd February 2018
Lesson from Grenfell Tower: inequality and housing need, the Giant that still divides us

Speakers: Professor Danny Dorling, Lynsey Hanley, Professor Anne Power

The crucially important role of social housing has been recognised following the Grenfell Tower disaster, which also laid bare the disconnect between the 'elites' and the most disadvantaged in society.This event explores the link between inequality and housing, evidenced by the growing demand for low cost rented housing among those on the very lowest incomes. Unless the voices of communities and residents are heard and taken seriously, there is a risk that gaps in society will widen even further.

This event is part of the LSE Festival: Beveridge 2.0

Time: 6:30-7:30pm

Location: Sheikh Zayed Theatre, New Academic Building

EU Foreign Policy, Brexit and Transatlantic Relations

28th February 2018
EU Foreign Policy, Brexit and Transatlantic Relations

The European Union, alongside NATO, used to be a steadily expanding feature of Transatlantic cooperation for more than half a century. However, "Brexit" and other developments have rocked the Atlantic space in a way that few observers would have anticipated less than two years ago. Today, the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) is "in the freezer", while the UK and EU are preparing for the former's exit from the latter. In order to find a way forward, it is time to explore the whole range of politically palatable and legally feasible modes of Transatlantic foreign policy cooperation that can work for the US, the EU, and the UK.

In this talk, Joris Larik will argue that it is a gross oversimplification to conceive of transatlantic relations post-Brexit as a "new" US-UK relationship next to the pre-existing US-EU relationship. Instead, "Brexit" entails a re-calibration of some of the many existing and interdependent triangular relationships the United States maintains with the EU and its Member States. Taking trade and security as salient case studies, the presentation will delve into existing and proposed forms of collaboration that go beyond the traditional the paradigm of full EU membership.

Speaker: Dr Joris Larik, Leiden University

Time: 1pm

Performing the Law - talk by Carey Young

6th March 2018
Performing the Law - talk by Carey Young

Event Time: 6pm

Venue: UCL Jeremy Bentham Room, Wilkins Building, UCL, Gower Street, London, WC1E 6BT

In this UCL Laws talk for International Womens’ Day, Carey Young, visual artist, Lecturer at the Slade School of Fine Art, UCL and Hon. Research Fellow at the School of Law, Birkbeck, will present and discuss her artistic work, which has addressed law for the last 15 years. 

The talk will centre on a screening of her video artwork Palais de Justice (2017), recently exhibited in major solo exhibitions at Paula Cooper Gallery, New York and Dallas Museum of Art. The piece was shot at the Palais de Justice in Brussels, the main courthouse of Belgium. Contradicting the familiar patriarchal culture of law, Young’s camera depicts female judges and lawyers sitting at trial, directing proceedings and delivering judgments. The film subtly builds a counter-narrative: a legal system seemingly centred on, and perhaps controlled by women, as if male presence may be optional or unnecessary in this particular future. Young filmed through a series of circular windows in courtroom doors, always shooting without the knowledge or permission of her subjects or the court. The windows and the camera’s lens are portrayed as an interwoven series of oculi, in which we watch justice as performance, and are ourselves implicated as witnesses and voyeurs. The New York Times termed it ‘a distinctly feminist view of jurisprudence..sensitive and bleak’. Artforum reviewed the piece as ‘mesmerizing’ and ‘transfixing’, with Young’s cinematography ‘breathtaking’. 

Young will also discuss her related body of artistic work which explores the potential of law as an ‘artistic medium’. Young collaborates with a legal team to make artworks in installation, video, performance, print, sculpture and photography which also operate as bespoke and experimental legal instruments. These have taken such diverse forms as disclaimers, contracts, offers, licenses, cautionary statements and a will, addressing such disparate legal fields as human rights, inheritance law, intellectual property and ‘outer space’ law. These artworks explore law in relation to performance, visuality and language, and explore law as a separate kind of ‘reality’, one with its own inherent subjectivities and points of breakdown.

Learning from the TTIP Negotiations: Looking backwards and forwards at Global Trade

7th March 2018
Learning from the TTIP Negotiations: Looking backwards and forwards at Global Trade

Event Time: 18:15

Venue: City, University of London

This event takes a range of perspectives in reflecting upon trade, global governance and future of international economic law. David Henig reflects upon his experiences in negotiating TTIP for the United Kingdom, as part of the negotiations talks for the largest trade deal ever negotiated between the EU and US. It is currently on hold without a future direction of any clarity. Yet important lessons can be garnered from this outcome. Elaine Fahey considers the benefits of the TTIP negotiations and what the EU has learned from negotiating with the US in a new era of hostility to globalisation and awareness and resonance for the voice of civil society. Are institutional or contextual innovations of TTIP to be found in newer EU negotiations or agreements e.g.EU-Singapore, Japan, Australia, what innovations are possible? What is the place of Brexit in this? David Collins considers the future of the global trading order, looking at ongoing difficulties in NAFTA’s re-negotiation, the potential for a US-UK FTA and the highly-anticipated TPP11.

The Child in the Family Court Room

26th April 2018
The Child in the Family Court Room

Venue: St Barnard's Inn Hall

What role do children play in the family trial? The case concerns their future: how is their voice heard? What happens if they hold the key to the issues before the court? Should they give evidence, hear evidence? Should they meet the judge deciding their futures? How does the court reduce the risk that the trial experience itself harms the child it is seeking to protect? In this lecture I will explore whether the family court system is fit for purpose when it comes to dealing with the children at the heart of its deliberations. Speaker: Jo Delahunty QC

Time: 6pm

Location: St Barnard's Inn Hall

No charge for entry and no advance booking, but it is first-come, first served on arrival.

Transparency in the Family Court: What goes on Behind Closed Doors?

24th May 2018
Transparency in the Family Court: What goes on Behind Closed Doors?

Who does the story belong to: the family or society? Where and how are the lines drawn? Until relatively recently the Family Court door was closed to all save the parties and professionals involved in the case. A 2014 initiative aimed to secure an immediate and significant change in practice to usher in greater understanding of the way in which the courts operate. The aim was to improve public awareness of the court process and to increase confidence in its actions. Transparency was the watch word of the day. Has it worked?

Speaker: Jo Delahunty QC

Modern Monarchy: State, Nation and Commonwealth

21st March 2018
Modern Monarchy: State, Nation and Commonwealth

Event Time: 6pm followed by wine reception

Venue: City, University of London

One hallmark of the Queen’s reign has been the diminution of her personal constitutional power. Despite this, or arguably due to this, one of most remarkable features of British public life in the past twenty years has been the rehabilitation of the Monarchy and broader Royal Family when trust in other political institutions has declined. From the nadir of the annus horribills, the Monarchy and Royal Family has largely avoided the scandal and radical reform seen in other political institutions, and has evolved into an institution enjoying record popularity. This evolution has been facilitated by a compliant media. However, this evolution may give way to radical change when a new monarch takes to the throne.

The management of such change requires a proper understanding of the role of the monarchy today set against a turbulent constitutional and political background. This seminar seeks to achieve this by exploring the challenges and contradictions inherent in the three core roles of the Modern Monarchy: Head of State, Head of Nation and Head of the Commonwealth. Resolving these challenges and contractions requires an understanding of existing political and constitutional dynamics as revealed by Brexit and the result of the 2017 General Election. From this, the place of the Monarchy in public life, and the appropriate role for future monarchs and future members of the Royal Family can be established.

This seminar, forms part of a broader research project, entitled, “Modern Monarchy”. Further details are available at www.craigprescott.com/modernmonarchy
