Erimus Chambers - Stuart Sampson

Stuart Sampson LLB (Hons)(Southampton)
Call to the Bar Inner Temple 1974
Crime, Civil, Motoring
After reading law at Southampton University and being called to the Bar, Stuart Sampson underwent pupillage at 2 Harcourt Buildings. He served three years as a Magistrates' Court Clerk at Ealing from 1980-1983, from where he moved to Thames Valley Police as a Prosecuting Solicitor.

On the creation of the CPS in 1986 he moved back to London. In 1987 he took charge of the CPS at Marylebone Magistrates’ Court. In 1991 he became one of the first Special Casework Lawyers in London, a position he held until leaving the CPS in 2012. As a Special Casework Lawyer he dealt with some of the most sensitive and complex cases in London: murder, drug-trafficking, money-laundering, fraud and others which required special handling.

From the passing of the Drug Trafficking Offences Act 1986 he took a keen interest in confiscation and restraint matters; he was the lead tutor in POCA matters and was one of the leading lawyers in the development of contempt in restraint cases (R v Adewunmi, and re M). He was also a lead tutor in fraud cases. He has been a Higher Court Advocate for some 10 years.
