Ontario Superior Court of Justice Trials

Interview with Trial Lawyer Karen McArthur

On the Record, Episode 5 is an interview about the intangible skills necessary for success at trial and beyond: creativity, confidence and courageousness.

Mick Hassell has the honour of interviewing legendary Criminal Barrister Karen McArthur.

Karen McArthur

Karen McArthur is a connector, lawyer, speaker and author.  She has acted as defence counsel in some of the most high profile criminal cases in the country.

Karen is an unrepentant feminist advocate and mother of three children.  Her interview is timely as the issue of women leaving criminal law has hit the news in a big way following the Criminal Lawyers’ Asssociation’s research report on The Retention of Women in the Private Practice of Criminal Law.

Episode 5 will give you a whole new set of inspiring personal qualities to think about in how you approach your trials.  Trust me, you’re going to love Karen’s attitude towards excelling at trial!
