7BR is delighted to present a series of short lunchtime webinars, for solicitors, covering key aspects of general and financial crime. Designed to help you make the most of your time working from home, each session is only 30 minutes long and will be presented by a different member of our Crime Team.

The talks will be delivered via live webinar, with an opportunity to ask our team questions at the end. The programme is as follows:

Webinar 1 – Friday 17th April – 13:30 – 14:15 – Maryam Syed

“Special measures & how to cross examine a vulnerable witness/defendant” examining the key legal factors and practical guidance on how to effectively question a witness identified as vulnerable and “What to look for when instructing a psychiatrist in the Crown Court.” A review of the legal and practical principals of choosing and properly briefing a psychiatric expert.

Both topics will deal with issues whether you are Prosecution or Defence.
