Dr Olivarius featured in Law Gazette

Dr Olivarius was featured in the 29 January edition of the Law Gazette, for her role in winning client Chrissy Chambers damages for her revenge pornography case. 

Dr Olivarius told the Law Gazette, "The good news is that after four years our client won a substantial payment and an apology in a new area of law. The bad news is that revenge porn is a growth industry - half of young people have shared intimate images because smartphones make it easy, so they are easy to misuse too. We lobbied hard for the criminal law against revenge porn that passed in 2015, but there are way too many cases for prosecutors to handle. I would like to see a civil law that gives victims a much clearer legal path to make perpetrators pay for the incredible havoc they cause. The websites profiting from hosting the material should also be made liable."
