Consideration of the Supreme Court's landmark change to the law of dishonesty
The decision of the Supreme Court in Ivey v Genting  UKSC 67 turned the law of theft on its head.
Thousands of lawyers, police officers and other investigators have been reared on R v Ghosh and its subjective element of dishonesty. Now it’s all change. Dishonesty becomes objective and as a result, fraud and dishonesty offences become much easier to prosecute successfully.
During this bite-size webinar solicitor-advocate and part-time deputy district judge Olwen Davies will review the decision in Ivey and will discuss how this applies to crime.
This webinar is essential viewing for all criminal practitioners; Whether you advise at the police station, take charging decisions or conduct trials, this session will examine how Ivey will impact on you and the advice which you provide.
For those wishing to consolidate their knowledge regarding life after Ghosh, an optional problem-scenario is included and should be attempted once the webinar has been viewed in full.
