The High Court will hear the appeal of Paul Chambers against his conviction on 10 November 2011. The appeal by case stated will be made by barristers Ben Emmerson QC and Sarah Przybylska, and I will be acting as his solicitor through my firm Preiskel & Co LLP.

The hearing will be almost exactly one year since Doncaster Crown Court on 11 November 2010 upheld his conviction under section 127(1) of the Communications Act 2003.
