So you've been given your very own personal injury case as a trainee or NQ? What do you do now?

Jennifer will take you through a mock personal injury claim from both sides of the pursuer/defender divide.

This seminar will focus on:

  • Preliminary issues
  • Introduction to the Court process: ASPIC and beyond
  • Liability: the great question.
  • Common heads of claim and what to do with them: valuation, expert input, causation
  • Practical hints and tips for handling cases
  • Advocacy: an introduction
  • The event begins at 2pm. Delegate registration is open from 1:30pm.
