Felicity acted for the defence in the Moot Court at Charles Darwin University when the School of Law assisted the Northern Territory Police College with training their investigators. This sort of training is invaluable to police officers, who are now considered “professional witnesses” under the national evidence law regime.

In addition to advocacy and research, Felicity currently lectures in Criminal Law, torts and practical advocacy. She has nearly 20 years’ experience at the Bar in the UK and has designed and delivered numerous training events to police, prosecutors and defence advocates.

She specialises in the treatment of vulnerable witnesses and defendants and has recently been appointed to the Vulnerable Witness Management Committee of the UK Advocacy Training Council which develops toolkits for advocates.
