Expert witness - McLaren & Others v HMA - criminal appeal

Project: Knowledge Exchange (Expert Witness)

Project Details


I was instructed as an expert witness in McLaren and Ors v HMA, a criminal appeal from the longest ever trial in Scottish history (320+ days of evidence, including vast amounts of complex fraud expert evidence). I was approached on the basis of my expertise and research on juries, and my reputation from the many CPD courses I have delivered to legal practitioners over the past decade on juries and the presentation of complex evidence. I scrutinised the trial and trial evidence, delivered a number of briefing papers to counsel, and attended consultations with counsel and case agents. (2017-18)
