News & current issues

This section of our website was becoming too onerous to keep up to date with our limited resources. However, our twitter feed (@UniRdg_LTRK) now provides regular and up-to-date links to sources, commentary and news on law, media, terrorism and security related issues. Simply click on the Twitter icon at the bottom right of this page to follow us.

The Security, secrecy and evidence in civil proceedings section of the website will continue to be updated regularly on issues relating to the Justice and Security Bill which is currently going through parliament.
