Committee Member Malcolm Fowler

Seventy three and married with twin daughters and a grandson, Malcolm has had a stake in the West Midlands since moving to Birmingham over fifty years ago. For over forty seven years he was a criminal defence Solicitor practitioner and advocate. With Higher Rights of Audience since June 1995, he has since then undertaken much Crown Court advocacy to include jury trials and other sensitive and serious cases.

Malcolm has held many exacting voluntary posts, notably as President of the Birmingham Law Society, as Chair of the Criminal Law Solicitors' Association, as Chair also of the national Law Society's Criminal Law Committee and as a member of the Society's Council and its Human Rights Committee. Since retiring he has continued with many voluntary activities touching upon close interests and resolute beliefs in criminal justice and penal reform. For about fifty years he has been a regular broadcaster and legal commentator on a host of criminal justice and allied topics.
