Scott Matthewson returns from Argentina where he advised leading Argentine judges, lawyers and academics & advocacy training

23rd May 2024

Scott Matthewson has just returned from Argentina where the adversarial system of trial is being newly implemented. Scott was part of a four-person team advising leading Argentine judges, lawyers and academics on the adversarial system in England & Wales and training lawyers in the method of advocacy training adopted by the Inns of Court. Scott joined Joanna Korner CMG KC (British Judge of the International Criminal Court in the Hague), Professor Cheryl Thomas KC (UCL) and Upper Tribunal Judge Jill Frances. Supported by the British Embassy and funded by UCL, ROLE UK and the Inner Temple, the team delivered a series of seminars, lectures and workshops to lawyers, judges and government ministers in Buenos Aires and to the Supreme Court in Salta. The team plans to return in the coming years to advise on the roll out of a new Argentinian advocacy programme across the country.
