About this Episode

“The first thing you have to do is you have to separate yourself from the consequences. The consequences of a murder case are obviously extremely serious, if a person if convicted, it’s life sentence…You have to say to yourself, ‘I’m going to do everything I can for this individual, but I have to be okay with the consequences of that.’”

Marco Sciarra is a criminal defence lawyer with a particular interest in defending serious violent offences. Learn more about his journey to becoming a defence lawyer with a large murder practice and his favourite parts of a trial.
