Delivered by criminal barrister and lecturer Clive Smith, this course will provide viewers with practical advice on how to handle every-day scenarios e.g. making applications under PACE and how to successfully cross-examine in sexual offences cases, making it an invaluable refresher to those with several years post HRA qualification experience.
Clive will utilise his experience as both an experienced practitioner and lead facilitator on the ‘vulnerable witness’ courses run by the Inns of Court, Circuits and the Law Society to ensure that viewers feel confident when interacting with vulnerable witnesses, somewhat of a hot topic within criminal law within recent years.
Consideration will also be given to the impact which unproven allegations have on bad character and propensity and how to advise the client regarding appeals post-Jogee.
Clive spent 10 years in chambers in London practising criminal law and appeared at all levels from the Magistrates to Court of Appeal. He has extensive experience in the youth court, dealing with young and vulnerable witnesses and is qualified as a lead facilitator undertaking training on the ‘vulnerable witness’ courses run by the Inns of Court, Circuits and the Law Society.
In the Crown Court Clive dealt with serious offences including rape, murder, kidnapping and firearms.
Clive now teaches exclusively on a wide range of topics. He has undertaken training to both prosecutors and defence practitioners on advocacy, criminal evidence, criminal procedure, bad character and hearsay, sentencing, and sexual offences.
