Disclosure the Attorney General’s Review Event
Date: Tuesday 22nd January 2019
Time: 6:30pm – 830pm Venue: Grange Hotel Holborn Chair: Jeremy Dein QC
Speakers: Paul Keleher QC,Aisling Byrnes, (both @ 25 Bedford Row) Hesham Puri –  LCCSA Treasurer
Following  recent publication of the Attorney General’s “ Review of the efficiency and effectiveness of disclosure in the Criminal Justice system“, the panel will put a spotlight on all aspects of this review.
This will be an evening of practical information and discussion as to the impact of the Attorney General’s recommendations, with special emphasis upon the future duties, responsibilities, arguments and options for the defence.  Has the review thrown up any meaning full recommendations? Alternatively, has the long delay produced more of the same, and nothing new?
These issues need urgent debate. Disclosure is important as never before to the role of the defence .
Drinks and nibbles afterwards.
