Criminal Law Update Courses

Leicestershire Law Society presents its criminal law courses for 2022!

Our informal and friendly courses are aimed at all levels of practitioner from the police station and paralegal stalwarts to the dizzy heights of Queen’s Counsel. Both prosecutors and defence lawyers are welcome. Our courses are presented by a speaker who is in practice  and understands the difficulties we all face in the Criminal Justice System.

During the year, we will run a series of updates courses covering

– Evidence

– Procedure

– Sentencing

– Costs

– New legislation

The Domestic Abuse Act 2021 will bring new definitions , procedures, offences and sentencing powers into force as it rolls out; the Offensive Weapons Act 2019 is expected to come into force more fully ,creating offences of knife crime in the home; criminal litigation continues to get more complicated. But don’t worry! We will cover all of these developments .
