2017/2018 CPD year
This DVD contains two sessions from the Personal Injuries stream of QLS Symposium 2017.
Part A - Pre-proceedings disclosure: Similar regimes, different obligations
The overwhelming focus of personal injuries legislation is to bring parties together to have a meaningful settlement conference prior to the institution of proceedings. The various personal injuries regimes encourage the parties to put all their cards on the table to enable this process to occur, but without uniformity. Knowing when to hold them and when to fold them can be strategic, but it is important not to bend the rules. With reference to recent cases, our expert presenter will share some practical tips.
Part B - Back to the future: Case law update
This session will reflect on the significant decisions relevant to personal injuries practice over the last twelve months to give you the opportunity to prepare for the future, by providing relevant and up to date advice to your clients. Fast forward your knowledge by attending this practical session.
