Alisdair Williamson QC co-author to CBA report into the working of Section 41

12 November 2018

Alisdair Williamson QC is a co-author of the shortly to be published CBA report into the working of section 41, which governs the sensitive and controversial area of cross-examination of complainants in sexual offence trials on their previous sexual history, particularly in light of the decision in R. v. Chedwyn Evans. The report is unprecedented in scope and detail. It provides a proper empirical basis from which to assess the section in operation and is recommended reading for all those practising in this area, as well as legal and media commentators.
