Speakers will also ask whether and to what extent law reform - including wide-ranging reforms that are currently being proposed by the Law Commissions of England and Wales and of Scotland - can solve these problems.

In the PET tradition, much of this event's running time will be devoted to letting the audience put questions and comments to the speakers.
