for anyone advising clients on whether to pursue an appeal to a higher court,
this session will offer a practical discussion of some issues to consider when
determining if an appeal is viable, such as costs, and the pitfalls which
viewers must watch out for when pursuing appeals.
in an easily digestible bite-size format, this 20-minute webinar will ensure that
practitioners are aware of new developments including the recent guidance
published concerning appeals to the Court of Appeal (Criminal Division).
will also be given to the circumstances in which the Magistrates’ Court is an
appeal court and the powers of the appeal courts.
