Seminar 5 UpdateInformation
Accreditation Information
SRA Competency B


This new course looks at the routine public order offences encountered in court such as street fights, football hooliganism, prison riots and closing-time trouble.

It also considers the increasing problem of political protests, such as those outside Parliament or climate change demonstrations, plus offences committed via social media or on paper. These incidents can be difficult to prosecute given human rights case law but equally, difficult to defend without knowing that law.

Using up-to-date case law, the ingredients of the main offences and defences are examined with the tactical and evidential considerations involved.

The course is aimed at both prosecution and defence advocates.
