Dr Denis Muller will chair a panel discussion between retired Supreme Court Judge Frank Vincent, who wrote the review of the Open Justice Act currently before parliament; Dr Jason Bosland, director of the Centre for Media and Communication Law, one of the leading researchers in this area; Melissa Davey, Melbourne bureau chief for The Guardian who covered the Pell court case every day but was forbidden from writing about it until the suppression order was lifted; and Lucie Morris-Marr from the New Daily, who was also in court every day but is a strong believer in the usefulness of suppression orders.
