Criminal Appeals Bulletin - Issue 58

Welcome to the September edition of the DSC Criminal Appeals Bulletin.

The Bulletin is aimed at assisting those involved in appellate work in England & Wales, Northern Ireland and the Caribbean.

In this edition we look at the proposals for the Law Commission’s review of the criminal appeal system, and the latest appeal cases from the Court of Appeal (Criminal Division), the Northern Ireland Court of Appeal, the Supreme Court (Financial Crime Appeals), the Privy Council, and from the Caribbean appellate courts. The citations of the cases are hyperlinked to the judgments.

DSC Criminal Appeal Unit

Doughty Street is renowned for housing many of the leading specialist criminal appeal barristers who have appeared in some of the most important miscarriage of justice cases over the last 30 years. Our cases frequently involve complex legal or evidential issues. We have built up a particular expertise in cases involving fresh evidence, often from forensic experts including DNA, firearms, and CCTV, and in cases involving appellants with mental health issues.

Please feel free to email Matt Butchard or Marc Gilby or call our crime team on 0207 400 9088 to discuss instructing us in appeal cases. We also offer our instructing solicitors a free Advice Line, where they can discuss initial ideas about possible appeals, at no cost to them or their client. More information on our criminal appeal services can be found on the new Criminal Appeals page of our website including links to back copies of the Bulletin and other resources.
