Devon Chambers' Criminal Seminar

Devon Chambers' Criminal Team held a highly informative seminar on Tuesday 6th December at Jury's Inn, Exeter Street, Plymouth. Our guest speaker Emma Wilson from Prometheus Forensic Services dispelled a few myths including those surrounding spontaneous combustion and fires destroying evidence. This was followed by delegates enjoying some festive fare and a glass of wine. Jo Martin then gave a talk on child cruelty and domestic violence cases from both the criminal and family courts perspective which proved of interest to both criminal and family practitioners in attendance. The evening was rounded up by Piers Norsworthy who gave a clear and concise talk on the new approach to vulnerable witnesses, citing that training will take place in the New Year for all criminal defence practitioners on the Western Circuit. Jason Beal, Jo Martin and Piers Norsworthy have been trained as Facilitators/Trainers and will be responsible for delivering training in this important new area.
