Crime

Some people say that the Criminal Department of Oriel Chambers is our best kept secret.Those who know our reputation for legal expertise often think that such a quality has no place in criminal practice. On the contrary, with a flood of criminal legislation in recent years and the challenge of the Human Rights Act, the need for advocates who are also lawyers has never been greater. Mindful of this need, we have a team of criminal practitioners who can argue cases as well as fight them. They practise at every level in the High Court, Crown Court and Magistrates Courts.
