The international professional and legal practice grant programme was mentioned as a way for barristers under seven years’ Call to gain financial support to attend international conferences and events. There were also some useful insights from a clerk and chambers director into the challenges and benefits of developing an international practice at a chambers level. The proposed revision of the international practice rules were also outlined. The International Committee Chairman James Dingemans QC urged all barristers to take advantage of the various opportunities that exist for criminal barristers to conduct international work. 

If you were not able to attend this event please note that a recording of the lecture can be downloaded from the Criminal Bar Association website at The International Committee plans to organise more workshops of this nature in 2011, and will be advertised in due course.
