Pupil Barrister in Oxford University Press International Crime Text


Trinity Chambers’ Pupil, Matthew Crowe, was recently published by Oxford University Press in the book – ‘Pluralism in International Criminal Law’.

The book has been edited by Professor Sliedregt and Dr. Vasiliev. Matthew co-authored a chapter of the book with Wayne Jordash Q.C. focusing on evidentiary challenges for the defence in domestic and international prosecutions of international crimes.The book, which is authored by leading practitioners and academics in the field, addresses pluralism and fragmentation of international criminal law. It challenges traditional pluralistic notions and the prospects of harmonised standards in the area. It includes chapters from eminent commentators such as Professors Jens David Ohlin, Mark Drumbl and James G. Stewart.

Matthew’s chapter examines the limited available analysis on minimum and objectively defined standards for defence resources in the prosecution of international crimes. He considers the concept of pluralistic standards of defence rights concluding that there is a need for a harmonised understanding of the evidentiary challenges faced by defence teams, and the nature and scale of resources needed to confront them.

Matthew is currently a "first six" Pupil working alongside barristers in Trinity Chambers' Criminal and Regulatory groups.

‘Pluralism in International Criminal Law’ is available from Amazon in hard copy and Kindle, ISBN-10:0198703198; ISBN-13:0198703198.
