Thursday 26 October | 6.00pm | Live from UK Supreme Court
This year Classics for All put Cicero in the dock, charged with murder and misconduct in public office.
He stood trial for acting illegally in the suppression of the Catilinarian conspiracy when he was Consul in 63 BCE, in particular for procuring the summary execution of five of the Catilinarian conspirators.
The trial was presided over by Lady Vivien Rose (Justice of the Supreme Court). Richard Whittam KC and Kwaku Awuku-Asabre acted as counsel for the prosecution, and Ali Bajwa KC and Polly Dyer as counsel for the defence.
The introduction by Lawyers Group Chairman Sir Rabinder Singh starts here.
