Swedish Bar Association Seminar

30 May 2024

On Tuesday 28th May, at the suggestion of our associates Lars Kruse and Johan Eriksson and following an invitation from the President and General Secretary, Mark Heywood KC addressed the criminal advocates’ section of the Swedish Bar Association, at their wonderful headquarters in the Diplomatstaden area of Stockholm. The subject was ‘KC system in England & Wales’, of interest to the Association because they would like to create a scheme of competency qualification for certain levels of case, including a possible Senior Counsel level. The address was very well received and formed part of a half-day seminar for the crime group. This is another step in 5KBW’s close association with lawyers and advocates in overseas jurisdictions. This was followed by a garden reception in the 27-degree Stockholm sunshine.
