Doughty Street Criminal Appeals Unit is delighted to present a series of seminars on criminal appeals and reviews.

These seminars are aimed at solicitors and case workers involved in challenging decisions of the magistrates and crown court. The series will deal with conviction and sentencing appeals to the Crown Court and Court of Appeal, challenging decisions by way of case stated and judicial review, and financial crime appeals.

They will cover the basics from preparation to presentation as well as a detailed analysis of tactical issues and updates on the latest case law, potential grounds of appeal, and procedure.

Each seminar will be worth 2 CPD points and will be followed by food and wine.


Grounds of Appeal against Conviction (1)

This seminar will deal with the Court of Appeal’s approach to three distinct grounds of appeal against conviction: jury irregularities, hearsay, and fresh evidence; how to identify and present the grounds, and when the Court is likely to intervene and quash a conviction based on these grounds. 

Chair: Francis Fitzgibbon QC
