R (on the application of Ben-Dor and others) v University of Southampton

Human rights – Freedom of expression. The Administrative Court dismissed the claimant professors' application for judicial review of the defendant university's decision to withdraw permission to hold a conference entitled 'International Law and the State of Israel: Legitimacy, Responsibility and Exceptionalism' on its campus on proposed dates. Given the risks of holding the conference, the decision had been a proportionate interference with the claimants' rights.
