Leslie Cuthbart


With a background as a Criminal Defence Solicitor-Advocate I am currently engaged in a number of diverse roles. These include judicial work in the Crown Court, as a Tribunal Judge, an Adjudicator and chairing hearings for the Police Misconduct Panel. In addition I train investigators, advocates and judges in relation to best practice in interviewing, cross-examination and decision making.

Author of two non-fiction books:

365 Daily Advocacy Tips (Cuthbert 2015, Bloomsbury Professional Publishing), and

Effective Interviewing for Disciplinary, Grievance and Complaints Investigations (Cuthbert, 2010)
