Some of the most popular films are those featuring courtroom dramas and other legal settings, such as Twelve Angry Men (1957), The Verdict (1982), Erin Brockovich (2000) and The Social Network (2010).
In this special Director's Cut Masterclass, leading advocate, Simon Di Rollo QC, will analyse what it is about the law that rings true on film, and what's just the stuff of movies. One of Scotland's most high profile court practitioners, Simon Di Rollo has argued a number of important cases before the Court of Session, the Sheriff Court, the High Court of Justiciary and General Medical Council tribunals. Di Rollo has also represented three leading cases involving the European Convention on Human Rights in the House of Lords.
Simon Di Rollo will be in conversation with Dr. Alan Marcus from the University of Aberdeen's Film Dept, and Prof. Peter Duff from University's Law School. This event, which is in collaboration with the University of Aberdeen's Law School, will be held in Screen 2 of the Belmont Picturehouse. Though the event is free, seating is limited, so please reserve your FREE place.
