Sam Stein QC
I am a ‘Trainer Trainer’ (highest Advocacy Training Council qualification) qualified Advocacy Trainer meaning that I can train other advocates in the Hempel Advocacy Training Method. I have many years experience as an advocacy trainer for the Inner Temple and the ATC both within the UK and Internationally. I have also been a Keble Advocacy Trainer for a number of years training on the South Eastern Circuits Higher Advocacy Training Course.
I have both undertaken and been a trainer on vulnerable witness training courses.
Working with Andrew Jefferies QC I have prepared and delivered bespoke training for solicitors dealing with all aspects of court craft; including examination in chief, cross examination, legal submissions, written arguments and speech making.
I am available for bespoke advocacy training sessions and dealing with one to one training or groups of up to ten at a time.
Working with Andrew Jefferies QC I have delivered a lecture dealing with Joint Enterprise for a number of solicitors firms and chambers over the last few years. This is a careful examination of the law, the best suggestions for the successful defence against these allegations and setting out both a critique and proposals for change. We call this lecture ‘Let’s do it together’
Recently myself and Andrew Jefferies QC have provided written submissions to the Law Commission who are considering the law as it relates to joint enterprise and potential change in this area. The Law Commission have recently been kind enough to inform me that they have published these submissions.
The Use of Psychiatric Evidence in Cases of Self-defence
This lecture is available as an analysis of the law of self-defence and the use of psychiatric evidence in support of both the first limb of the defence i.e. whether the defendant believed that he needed to act in self-defence and in support of the second question that arise in self defence the reasonableness of the force used in self defence.
