George Gebbie

Advisory Board Member

George Gebbie is a barrister at Black Chambers, based in Edinburgh. He originally trained and practised as a state prosecutor before becoming a defence lawyer. George specialises in human rights and devolution issues and has worked on a number of prominent cases, including Campbell & Steele v HMA, HMA v Samuel Anderson and Megrahi v HMA. George has published articles on cross-border matters arising in criminal justice.

For many years George has been involved in the application of international legal norms in situations and cases both domestically and internationally. He has played a significant role in both cross-border and international law cases, as well as cutting-edge domestic criminal cases. He has also been involved in training colleagues from different jurisdictions and has in turn applied techniques and strategies learned from practitioners from other legal systems. Following his employment as a state prosecutor, throughout his involvement in these areas, including the writing of articles and the provision of training to different professional groups, George has at all times been a full-time practising criminal lawyer.
