Leading advocate makes Hallam debut

9th October 2014

A leading QC who has appeared in a series of high-profile sports and music industry cases has been lined up for one of the first public events in Sheffield Hallam's newest lecture theatre, at its Heart Of The Campus building.

Described as "utterly brilliant" by law experts Chambers UK (2014), David Casement QC will appear at the Heart Of The Campus on Thursday 16 October at 4pm. The lecture, one of the first public events in the University's new £27m building, is free but places must be booked in advance. Attending the lecture leads to an hour of continuous professional development (CPD). In a 22-year career since being called to the Bar in 1992, Mr Casement has developed a reputation for sports arbitration and has taken part in many landmark cases, involving footballers such as Wayne Rooney and Charlie Adam. Chambers goes on to say that: "His advocacy style is flexible and helpful - he just does what is needed, and his cross-examination is excellent. "He is an excellent and versatile silk who appreciates the client's commercial goals and brings a creative approach." Senior lecturer in law Greg Ioannidis, who has organised the lecture through his role as Academic Associate at Kings Chambers, said: "David Casement is one of the most technically gifted sports arbitration lawyers I have ever encountered. "This lecture is a must-see for anyone with an interest in the nuances of sports law, and shows the ambition we have to bring some of the most contemporary names in law to the University to share and develop best practice."
