Attorney General’s Disclosure Consultation Online Event
The disclosure of unused material in criminal cases remains a crucial part of a fair trial and is essential to avoiding miscarriages of justice.
In February this year, the Attorney General and Lord Chancellor launched a public consultation on the revised versions of the Attorney General’s Guidelines on Disclosure for investigators, prosecutors and defence practitioners (‘the Guidelines’) and the Criminal Procedure and Investigations Act 1996 (‘CPIA’) Code of Practice.
This consultation is an opportunity to take a crucial step in the disclosure process, both to deal with issues that have been a long-standing concern and to provide practitioners with the tools they need to handle their disclosure obligations effectively.
The Attorney General and Solicitor General invite you all to join a virtual discussion on the proposed changes to the Guidelines and the Code. The Law Officers will be introducing two online Q&A sessions hosted by disclosure policy experts from the Attorney General’s Office, to gather comprehensive views on the proposed changes on the following dates:
- 8 July 2020 at 09:30am
- 14 July 2020 at 16:30pm
