MALA & Women in Criminal Law
Updated: Oct 7, 2019
Join us for an evening with Dr Clare Gunby and Dr Anna Carline 'And occasionally you can be reduced to tears’
Exploring how emotions taint the work of rape barristers
Drawing on British Academy funded research, this presentation considers the ways in which the work of barristers who prosecute and defend in rape cases is emotionally ‘tainted’. It considers the impact of clients’ burdensome emotions, feelings and behaviours on barristers themselves: impacts which can be uniquely gendered.
