The Solicitors International Human Rights Group has asked SAHCA to collaborate in the staging in Siberia of a jury trial advocates training programme in February 2019. The commitment would involve a minimum five days including travel plus the preparation of case study materials. All expenses will be paid and fees are under negotiation. The UK co-ordinator of the programme is solicitor-advocate Lionel Blackman, Director of the Solicitors International Human Rights Group (see www.sihrg.org)
Jury trials are rolling out across Russia but the acquittal rate remains in the 1% region and advocates there are keen to benefit from our jury trial experience to improve these disturbing figures.
