Sarah Bafadhel and Joe Holmes to deliver ADC-ICTY training


On 12 November, the Association of Defence Counsel Practising Before the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia (ADC-ICTY) will host a training event in “Drafting Before the International Tribunals”.

Sarah Bafadhel and Joe Holmes of 9 Bedford Row will deliver the training together with Catriona Murdoch (1 Crown Office Row) and Natalie von Wistinghausen (NVW Law).

Legal assistants are responsible for a vast amount of the written filings before international tribunals and this training will be designed to assist, in particular, legal assistants, both current and aspirational. The panel has collective experience, as legal assistant and counsel, of most of the major international criminal tribunals and is well placed to offer insights into drafting at all stages of the process. The training will focus primarily on motions, final trial briefs and appellate drafting.
