Master Leveson and Master Goldstone will interview each other, thus providing an opportunity for them to have a wide-ranging discussion covering the many themes which have arisen during their very long and prominent careers. The discussion between them would likely concentrate on (but would not be limited to) ethics, standards and values; justice and the rule of law; career development, and inclusion.
