Dr Wragg awarded Fellowship by Inner Temple
Dr Paul Wragg (School of Law) is one of four prominent legal academics from UK universities to have been appointed as an Academic Fellow of the Honourable Society of the Inner Temple.
Inner Temple is one of the four Inns of Court in London and is a professional body for many barristers, which provides legal training, selection and regulation.
The Fellowship Scheme aims to recognise the outstanding contribution of legal teaching and research of early to mid-career academics and to support their research, whilst building a stronger relationship between the Bar and legal academia. Inner Temple also works closely with universities across the UK to provide information on the profession of aspiring students.
Dr Wraggs research interests lie in free speech theory and its application to contemporary legal problems, particularly the judicial treatment of privacy and the media. He has published extensively in this area and has spoken at numerous national and international events as well as on TV. His most recent paper, The Benefits of Privacy-Invading Expression, delivered to the Society of Legal Scholars Annual Conference 2012, was shortlisted for the SLS Best Paper Prize.
