Special Interest sessions
This work is vitally important, as our expert opinion can inform proceedings against real people who have often committed serious criminal offences. Trainees are actively encouraged and supported to undertake this work, under close, expert supervision from Consultants. As well as preparing detailed forensic psychiatric reports, we often give evidence in Court and work closely with solicitors and barristers (defence and prosecution) in relation to this. It is a privilege to be involved in this detailed, important work, which often has huge implications for the lives of a wide range of people including defendants, victims and families.
