The Criminal Law Friends Society is a social networking organisation and professional training provider of CPD lectures and conferences for solicitors, barristers and their support teams who work specifically in the criminal defence, civil liberties and human rights subject areas of law. We provide high end bespoke parties and high specification criminal law conferences and crime update lectures in state of the art venues across the UK.
We provide the very best barristers on the London and Manchester criminal circuits to deliver a polished range of lectures which include practical procedures, strategies, tactics and case management tips including the sharpest academic focus on up to the minute case law updates. We provide comprehensive course notes with accomplished and vastly experienced speaker profiles. We provide leading Counsel and QC’s who offer an engaging range of specific lectures covering the complete spectrum of criminal law topics. We invite specialist criminal solicitors and criminal law experts to speak as well and are currently sponsored in that context by the ever excellent Forensic Equity.
We provide excellent free parties in peachy locations for our members to catch up or network. A recent networking party saw 450 solicitors and barristers from 125 firms and chambers enjoy the criminal defence main event party of the summer aboard HMS President. We support numerous charities which are listed on our archive pages.
This organisation is run by friends working at all levels of their criminal defence careers and offers a 360 degree holistic approach to the future of our profession adopted by our team as an ethical core.
The originating ethos of this organisation is that the development of these events is borne out in our friendships created during our ardouos commitment to our criminal defence work. We are called the Criminal Law Friends Society and we would like you to be a part of our national network and share in our commitment to providing an ethical social and training platform for those who defend.
