During a jury trial, jurors are asked to perform a seemingly simple task – hear the evidence put by the prosecution and defence, and then determine, based on that evidence, the guilt of the accused. But the task is not that simple – jurors are actually asked to apply the facts to the law and then, based on that assessment, determine guilt. This is a skill that lawyers train for years to develop.

This Criminal Law Panel event brings together experts from the bench, prosecution and defence in the criminal justice system who use and rely on jury directions.They will engage in a thought-provoking discussion on this topic with each other and the students in attendance. 


Panel members

The Honourable Justice Chris Maxwell AC, President of the Court of Appeal, The Supreme Court of Victoria

Professor Felicity Gerry QC, Barrister, Victorian Bar and Professor of Practice at Deakin University Law School

Sally Flynn QC, Barrister, Victorian Bar


Following the session, there will be opportunity to network with students and legal practitioners.
