In this seminar John-Paul and Rory will present an in-depth look at the causation rules and exceptions in the context of clinical negligence claims with a focus on recent case law. Causation is almost always in dispute in clinical negligence cases and it is essential for clinical negligence practitioners to have a good understanding of the rules of causation, which (un)fortunately happen to be complex and evolving.

This is a free event and will be hour long. Booking is required (booking form can be found below) – places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
