No5 Barristers’ Chambers presents a full day Medico-Legal Seminar to assist all who practice in the field of Children Law. There will be a number of distinguished speakers from a range of paediatric disciplines commonly encountered in cases with a medical element.
Topics will include:
- The paediatric overview
- What can radiology tell us? (and what it can’t tell us)
- Which expert do you need? (and what material does the expert need?)
- SARC investigations
The aim is to increase awareness amongst practitioners of what to ask and when to ask it.
We hope you can make it!
