The ongoing professional development of Barristers at Westgate Chambers includes vulnerable witness training.

Giving evidence can often be difficult or intimidating, especially for vulnerable witnesses, and what they have to say is often vital to the outcome of cases. Using specific techniques for cross-examination helps vulnerable witnesses to feel more secure and means that they are more likely to give their best and most accurate evidence. That is in the interests of the witnesses themselves and the interests of justice.

The following barristers have now completed their vulnerable witness training. This list will be updated as further barristers complete the training.
