Legal Eagles - four fascinating stories in one day!

Year 2s and MAs preparing for your NCTJ law exams - you've been handed three, maybe four, stories today which could help your exam answers feel fresh and up-to-date. Make sure you read up on the big one - Max Mosley's failure in the European Court of Human Rights - and also note that Lord Triesman's remarks in the House of Commons today (potentially highly defamatory) had the benefit of privilege. The PCC has castigated the D. Telegraph for its sting on Vince Cable - especially useful for the MAs with the emphasis on PCC in your exam. And........note that in the Millie Dowler murder case, Levi Bellfield's previous convictions have been revealed to the jury under the "bad character" provisions. Phew!
