Carlos Gómez-Jara

Advisory Board Member

Carlos Gómez-Jara is a Criminal Defence Attorney and the founding partner of the law firm Corporate Defense. He has worked on a number of prominent cases involving Spanish court secrecy proceedings (Candido Gonzalez Martin et al vs. Kingdom of Spain), the application of Article 54 Schengen Treaty to extradition cases, and ECtHR case law regarding human rights violation and extradition proceedings in Turkmenistan.

In Candido Gonzalez Martin et al vs. Kingdom of Spain, it was found that Spanish court secrecy proceedings  are violative of the reasonable time and right to prompt information provision contained in the Due Process clause of Article 6 of the ECHR. Fair Trials filed an amicus brief supporting the motion.

Carlos is also an Associate Professor of Criminal Law at the Universidad Autonoma de Madrid and has published widely on criminal law.
