This is the latest in our 1CL Weekly Webinar series – Secondary Victim Claims: the “patchwork quilt of distinctions”.
Edward Bishop QC and Laura Johnson will discuss the challenges of secondary victim cases.
They will consider the application of the control mechanisms set out in the case of Alcock v Chief Constable of West Midlands Police, and the appeal decision last week in the case of Paul v Royal Wolverhampton NHS Trust, which considers the question of what is meant by the requirement that the secondary victim be proximate in time and space to the “event”.
Edward and Laura will also be answering any questions you may have on secondary victim claims. Please submit your questions when registering for the event and they will answer as many as they can during the webinar.
Whilst the majority of us continue to work remotely, these webinars will take place every Thursday at 11am. We will be exploring some Covid-19 related issues, but also looking beyond that to cover a whole range of topics that are relevant to you at this time.
We look forward to seeing you there!
