Course Overview

Despite, or because of, the Supreme Court decision in R v Jogee, the concept of joint enterprise continues to confound and confuse both prosecutors and defence advocates.

Delivered by solicitor-advocate and part-time District Judge Olwen Davies, this bite-size webinar will guide viewers through why the law went wrong and what the law is today. This session will include practical examples to illustrate points and suggestions on how to deal with points which occur before and during trial.

Whilst aimed primarily at advocates, the webinar will also give real assistance to those advising clients at the police station regarding joint enterprise and paralegals proofing defendants and witnesses in preparation for trial.

The webinar comes complete with authorities and a problem question to solve to consolidate your knowledge.
