About Doughty Street Chambers' Criminal Appeal Unit 

Members of Doughty Street Chambers represent appellants across the full range of offences, from the relatively minor to homicides and terrorism, and at all levels, from challenging magistrates' courts' decisions, drafting submissions to the Criminal Cases Review Commission, to appearing before the highest appellate courts. Since its inception, members of the Criminal Law Team have been involved in high-profile miscarriage of justice appeals, and guideline cases before the Court of Appeal (Criminal Division), the House of Lords/Supreme Court, the European Court of Human Rights and the Privy Council. Members regularly lecture on appellate topics and the second edition of Taylor on Criminal Appeals (OUP 2012), the leading specialist practitioner textbook in this area, has been written by a group including 14 members of the Criminal Law Team.
