Iain Edwards' international criminal work has been recognised by his listing in this year's Chambers and Partners as one of a small handful of leading juniors in the area. His entry describes him as an "international criminal law specialist who is praised for his approach with clients and his strong advocacy. He has spent a considerable amount of time representing individuals accused of genocide and crimes against humanity before the ICTR, and continues to be instructed by Rwandans facing similar charges. He has also appeared before the Special Tribunal for Lebanon in The Hague."
Iain's strengths have been identifed as "ethical and very meticulous in his cross-examination," and "he is an excellent barrister, who is very hard-working and shows great initiative".
