On 14 March, Mills & Reeve published this article about Strategic Lawsuits Against Public Participation (SLAPPs), which it says present an important issue within society, politics and the legal profession, particularly in a libel and privacy context.  It looks at how SLAPPS impact freedom of speech and public participation, why there is a current focus at a governmental and regulatory level and what future change might be on the horizon.  The article signposts the full SRA guidance in the UK which is a must read and conclude with the recent high-profile Arron Banks libel case.
