“Today I am talking to Nichola Higgins, Chairman of the Young Barristers Committee. On the 30th March of this year, the CPS announced:

‘The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) is today (30/3/2011) launching a new scheme for the delivery of prosecution services in court. All advocates undertaking prosecution work in the Crown Court (and Higher Courts) from October must be members of new, quality-controlled CPS Advocate Panels. The panels will be open to all barristers and solicitor advocates, and panel members will complement and work alongside CPS in-house advocates. Although the overall number of advocates on the panels will be reduced compared to the current lists, selected advocates will have more opportunity to undertake prosecution work. All current counsel lists will be abandoned when the panels commence on 1 October.’

We also looked at the broader health of the Criminal Bar, the impact of legal aid and the prospects for students contemplating a career at the Criminal Bar.”

Football and domestic violence – BBC Law in Action

“At the half way stage of the World Cup, police forces across the UK are paying unsolicited visits to men with a record of domestic violence. It’s a strategy recommended by the Association of Chief Police Officers. According to ACPO, research shows that domestic violence peaks during big sporting events like the World Cup. Many police forces have therefore concluded that it makes sense to let potential perpetrators know they are being watched. As Joshua Rozenberg finds when he sees the policy in action in Nottinghamshire, police on the ground belive the policy is working. But a closer look at the evidence casts doubt on whether there really is such a link and traces the idea that there is back to an urban myth from the United States.”

Owning your image – BBC Law in Action

Are there enough safeguards to protect the public from being unfairly linked with criminals? Is maintaining public order being used as an excuse to engineer a surveillance society? Or are the authorities simply taking the minimum steps to ensure a determined and well-organised minority of protesters bent on disruption do not wreck the lives of the law-abiding majority?”

Podcast 33: Simon Myerson QC on Pupillage and how to get it… – Charon QC Blog

“Today I am talking to Simon Myerson QC, a member of Park Court Chambers in Leeds and author of the very useful blog ‘Pupillage and How to get it’. Simon is well qualified to give advice, which he does generously on his blog, having practised at the Bar for over twenty years and served as Head of Pupillage in his Chambers until 2003. Although he states on his blog that his experience is provincial rather than metropolitan, the advice given on his blog, structured in a logical and progressive way in the contents, will be of value to all who are contemplating a career at the Bar.”
