Law Commission review of hate crime laws: online public event

Gscene Editorial Team November 29, 2020

The Law Commission is hosting a live event on Thursday December 10 from 2-3.30pm to answer questions about the reforms to hate crime laws that it provisionally proposed in their paper – Hate Crime Laws: A Consultation Paper.

The event is open to all members of the public who are interested in this area of law, and have questions surrounding the reform proposals, or who would like to make sure their views are heard about hate crime, online harms or reforming and updating the current law to better protect LGBTQ communities online.

The event will be conducted using Microsoft Teams Live, and you can register to attend here

The event is intended to provide an opportunity for members of the public to ask questions about the provisionally proposed reforms and is targeted particularly at those the Law Commission has not yet had an opportunity to meet during the consultation period. They are particularly interested to hear from LGBTQ communities and their expense of online hate and harm.

Further details are outlined on the Eventbrite page, and the Law Commission encourages all those with an interest in this review to consider registering.
