EVENT: Gresham College – When Legal Worlds Collide

Posted December 9th, 2016 in Forthcoming events by sally

‘This lecture will explore and explain the difference in outcomes between cases in Crime and Care, considering the framework of ‘Beyond reasonable doubt’ versus ‘the balance of probabilities’ and the concept of the judge’s role to determine the law and the jury the facts, as against the idea that the judge determines all. Rules on disclosure, hearsay, use of expert witnesses, and time scales in court will be examined to consider why a Not Guilty verdict in Crime may not be enough, in some cases, to resume being a parent.’

Date: 26th January 2017, 6.00-7.00pm

Location: Barnard’s Inn Hall, Holborn, London EC1N 2HH
