Date: Thursday 21 May 2020
Time: 5:15pm - 6:00pm
Speaker: David Wood, Counsel, 25 Bedford Row
Contributors: Courtenay Griffiths QC, Adrian Eissa QC, Samantha Riggs and Dominic Thomas, Counsel, 25 Bedford Row
Chair: Sonal Dashani, Counsel, 25 Bedford Row
Format: Via Zoom.
Presented by David Wood, a specialist in criminal defence and regulatory law and recognised as a leading individual in these fields in the Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners. David is a former Secretary of the Criminal Bar Association and has a longstanding track record of arguing for the protection of the interests of criminal practitioners, both Counsel and solicitors. This makes him an obvious choice to deliver an informative and balanced perspective on the proposals to resume Jury trials this summer, focusing on the latest information available from key agencies and facilitating a discussion as to the practical steps practitioners will want to consider as these proposals are developed.
This webinar will include first-hand insight from some of our member contributors who are involved in the first of these trials at the Central Criminal Court and Bristol Crown Court. An opportunity to consider the available measures that have been put in place and how they are being received by practitioners and defendants.
