Private Law of Protest — Kent, UK

Kent Law School will be hosting a one-day workshop on November 4, 2011 to examine the deployment of private law by university management against students in the context of recent protests against the marketisation of learning and teaching. The workshop will draw on the experiences of occupiers and their lawyers in mapping and critiquing the use of tort, contract and property law to end, prevent and punish student occupations of university buildings.
