Overruled: Confronting Our Vanishing Democracy in 8 Cases, In conversation with Dr Sam Fowles

When: Tuesday 6 December 2022Time: 13:00 - 14:00 GMT

When the former Prime Minister illegally prorogued Parliament, Dr Sam Fowles was part of the team that took him to court and won.

In a high-profile Parliamentary inquiry following police violently restraining women at a vigil for Sarah Everard, Sam proved the Metropolitan Police's actions fundamentally breached our right to protest.

In this Academy talk, Dr Sam Fowles, barrister specialising in public and constitutional law will be discussing his book Overruled: Confronting Our Vanishing Democracy in 8 Cases.

At a crucial juncture for British governance, Fowles urges us not to take our freedoms for granted. As he says, "we shouldn’t have to take our rulers to court just to get them to follow the rules."
