In the third of his three annual lectures, Joshua Rozenberg reports on what has been achieved so far and asks how close we are to delivering online justice.
No reservations are required for this lecture. It will be run on a ‘first come, first served’ basis.
Doors will open 30 minutes before the start of the lecture
