The School of Law is pleased to present Dr Donal Coffey, University of  Portsmouth, delivering the seminar 'Contempt of Parliament and the European Convention on Human Rights'.

This talk will focus on the issue of contempt of parliament and its possible extinguishment by the European Convention on Human Rights.  The talk will first of all outline the development of contempt of parliament and the two models that have conventionally been deployed to explain the power.  Second, it will analyze whether contempt of parliament has survived the decision of the ECtHR in Demicoli v Malta. Finally, it will consider whether the Human Rights Act 1998 has repealed the power and, if not, in what manner it still exists today.
