Mountford Chambers is home to several barristers who have significant international law expertise, particularly in International Criminal Tribunals including appeals and cases involving extradition. Chambers prides itself on the range of quality advocates who undertake advisory, consultancy and adversarial work on Genocide, Crimes against Humanity, and War Crimes across all of the International Courts and Tribunals.
Members of Chambers frequently advise on areas where International Criminal Law encroaches on domestic cases. This is becoming increasingly common where there are overlaps with International Humanitarian Law, Human Rights, Terrorism as an international crime, and Extradition.
Chambers has a long-established history in Commonwealth law work. We advise and represent in the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council. In addition, our members have worked with Commonwealth governments in the development of criminal law.
More recently, members have been engaged to advise on private prosecution cases that include an international element, specifically against individuals in the USA.
Our barristers regularly advise and appear in legally complex, cases even concerning extraterritorial and universal jurisdiction and aspects of foreign law. This includes substantial experience acting in major extradition proceedings. Their work includes representing those who appear in the different international tribunals, including the IRMCT.
Several members also have experience in dealing with death penalty cases abroad, as well as teach, train and lecture practitioners on the other subject. Members frequently act on a pro-bono basis on individual cases in different jurisdictions, including the USA, Indonesia, and Pakistan.
