On 27 November the Inns of Court College of Advocacy (ICCA) and the Royal Statistical Society (RSS) joined forces to officially present the joint guide: “Statistics and probability for advocates: Understanding the use of statistical evidence in courts and tribunals”.

Hosted at UCL, the event took the form of a seminar followed by a drinks reception. Derek Wood CBE QC (ICCA’s Chair of Governors) welcomed everyone to the evening and introduced the speakers: Professor Ruth Morgan (Director, UCL Centre for the Forensic Sciences), Professor Sir David Spiegelhalter OBE FRS (President, RSS) and Dr Claire McIvor (Birmingham Law School); who highlighted the challenges courts and tribunals face when confronted with expert and statistical evidence in particular.

The booklet, is available to download, free on our website; aims to provide a sound educational resource for advocates who have to present and challenge statistical evidence at trial.
