Cambridge Annual Medico-Legal Conference 2012

  • Date: 13 September 2012
  • Venue: Peterhouse College, Cambridge
  • Cost: £275.00
  • Click here for further details
  • Summary: The second Cambridge Annual Medico-Legal Conference (a not-for-profit event) is being held at Peterhouse College, Cambridge on 13 September 2012. Of particular interest to those involved in the assessment, treatment and litigation of pain, the conference cost includes an evening banquet in Peterhouse Hall. This year the focus is on exaggeration and psychological diagnosis in personal injury cases. The conference will give you access to leading experts in the field of medico-legal pain, both medical and legal, and offer you the opportunity to network, socialise and expand your range of contacts. All delegates will be able to include a free one-quarter page précis CV in the conference programme and exchange ideas and best practice with leading practitioners. The conference has been awarded 5 CPD points by the Royal College of Anaesthetists and 5 CPD points by the Solicitors Regulation Authority.

Expert Witness Institute Annual Conference 2012

  • Date: 4 October 2012
  • Venue: The Church House Conference Centre, Westminster
  • Cost: £220.00 for EWI members (£250 otherwise)
  • Click here for further details
  • Summary: This year the theme of the conference will be the Jackson Reforms, due to come into force in April 2013 and which are certain to affect significantly the work of experts in the litigation process. Topics will include the important changes that will be made to case management procedures, and the likely severe inroads that the reforms will make on costs (and so on fees). A panel session will highlight the pioneering format for the concurrent courtroom presentation of expert evidence from both sides – the process known as ‘hot-tubbing’. Speakers will include: Lord Faulks QC, Mr Andrew Rennison (Forensic Science Regulator), Mr Steve Walker CBE (Independent Consultant and former CEO NHSLA), Dr Meng Aw-Yong (Medical Director of Forensic Healthcare Services, Metropolitan Police), Dr Judith Freedman (Psychiatrist) and John Henderson (Fellow of the British Orthopaedic Association).

Bond Solon Annual Conference 2012

  • Date: 9 November 2012
  • Venue: The Church House Conference Centre, Westminster
  • Cost: £235.00 + VAT
  • Click here for further details
  • Summary: Now in its 18th year, Bond Solon claims that this conference is the largest annual gathering of expert witnesses in the UK. It is an opportunity to hear from high-profile speakers and keep abreast of the current developments and key issues that are affecting expert witnesses. This year the keynote address will be delivered by Rt Hon Lord Justice Goldring, Senior Presiding Judge for England and Wales. The conference programme will look at such issues as changes flowing from the Jackson Reforms due to come into force in April 2013, as well as expert meetings. There will also be a debate on the motion ‘if you’re no longer in practice then you can’t be a court expert’.
