Nina Tavakoli has been invited as a Speaker today (31st May) to discuss opportunities for Criminal Law Practitioners at the International Bar focusing on careers in international criminal tribunals.

Topics for discussion include:

  • What can criminal lawyers from the UK Bar offer to the rest of the world?
  • What can practice outside the UK offer to UK criminal lawyers?
  • Contributions from individuals who have experienced both during their careers of varying spans.
  • Practical areas of law where criminal lawyers can participate and add value to international and trans-national justice.

Speakers include: Kirsty Brimelow KC (Chair) Peter Carter KC (Chair of the CBA International Committee) Misa Zgonec-Rozej (Doughty St Chambers) Paul Garlic KC (Furnival Chambers) alongside others.
