Steven Kay QC is Head of Chambers at 9 Bedford Row, a leading set of barrister’s Chambers established in London over 60 years ago. He is an international criminal lawyer with a global reputation who has been in the landmark cases including: the first UN trial at the Yugoslavia Tribunal (Duško Tadić) that created modern international criminal law; the first trial of a former Head of State (ex-President of Serbia, Slobodan Milošević); and the first trial at the ICC of an incumbent Head of State (President Uhuru Kenyatta of Kenya). Steven is also engaged by governments and organisations to investigate matters of international concern such as the 30 years conflict in Sri Lanka between the Tamils and the state; Egypt and the Muslim Brotherhood; Montenegro corruption and conflicts of interest; human rights abuses in Algeria; the IBA report on political prisons in North Korea, corruption in Montenegro; “Kazakhstan Questions About Government Justice and International Arbitrations”; and “A Report on the Lundin Case”. His reports have been influential upon world affairs - and in the case of President Kenyatta at the ICC, he won the presidential election during his trial.
