October 2018 Manchester Criminal Defence Essential Update Conference

In response to excellent feedback from our 2017 conferences, our delegates requested that we provide a practical and procedural all-encompassing programme for 2018, so we did!

Also this was an opportunity for ex criminal defence human rights barrister Nikki Alderson to host a stall on coaching for female lawyers.

With the insight and expertise of criminal defence police station advice experts ,solicitors and barristers from the multi agency platform who took part we gave a panoramic update with Joel Bennathan QC of Doughty Street Chambers providing a tremendously well received finale to an excellent day .
