On the 7th April 2017 the Junior Chamber of Advocates organised a seminar for its members. The seminar was held at the Conference Room of the Chamber of Advocates and its aim was to address students in the practical application of the principles of substantive Criminal Law in so far as Crimes against the Person are concerned.
Dr. Joseph Giglio was invited to attend and address the participants. During the seminar, which was very well attended, Dr. Giglio focused on giving practical examples of various cases he has had to handle and how to relate these experiences and the circumstances of each case to the theoretical aspect of crimes against the person. In this way students could understand and perceive that theoretical principles taught throughout the course of their studies do have a practical application once they graduate and start to exercise their profession.
The Junior Chamber of Advocates is a branch of the Chamber of Advocates that represents Law students. It’s aim is to bridge the gap between the Chamber of Advocates, whose members are warranted lawyers, and Law students. It is pertinent to point out that Dr. Giglio was a member of the Committee of the Chamber of Advocates when the decision to have the Junior Chamber recognised as a sub-branch of the Chamber of Advocates itself was taken. In fact, Dr. Giglio, together with the other members of the Committee at the time, had strongly advocated the need to take this decision. This move had proven to be a step in the right direction and one augurs that the good work being done will continue to be done with the same enthusiasm in the years to come.
