In the second instalment in our jury system mini-series, Becky Annison speaks to Audrey Cherryl Mogan, a barrister at Garden Court Chambers. The pair chat about Audrey’s inspiration for her work and her recent case successfully defending one of six Christian Climate Change activists who obstructed a DLR train during an Extinction Rebellion protest in London.
They look at the facts of the case and why the judge believed a trial by jury was the right approach. They also discuss how jury trials support the legislative process, the ways in which our jury system can be criticised, and the challenges facing practitioners in this area.
With this mini-series receiving such positive feedback, we look forward to continuing our deep dive into the role of jury trials.
As always, if you have any feedback, guest suggestions or topic ideas, please get in touch.
