9 Park Place - www.9parkplace.co.uk

Welcome to the first online edition of the 9 Park Place Criminal Team newsletter.  

In this quarterly publication we will bring you articles highlighting current awareness and centred on issues which we hope will be of relevance to your criminal practice.  The newsletter will also provide you with details of any forthcoming free seminars in chambers, during which we aim to deliver insightful analysis into pertinent practice matters (as well as free CPD points).  Please feel free to contact our clerking team to discuss attendance at the seminars or if you would like a presentation tailored to your particular subject area of interest.
I would like to take this opportunity to welcome a number of new additions to the 9 Park Place Criminal Team, who bring with them a wealth of experience to complement our existing expertise.  Together we aim to continue to provide the highest quality advocacy and advice in criminal matters. 
As ever, should you have any queries about this newsletter, or about our criminal team, please do not hesitate to contact one of our clerking team.
