Head to Toe Webinar Series


Wednesday 17th March 2021





The 12 King’s Bench Walk Clinical Negligence Team is delighted to announce its Head to Toe series of seminars.

During each session, a leading medical expert will be joined by two of the barristers from 12KBW to delve into the medicine and topical legal issues relating to that body part.

The series will be starting on 18th February at 6pm with neurosurgeon Mr John Norris joined by Henry Charles and John-Paul Swoboda in a discussion of neuroanatomy and the causation issues that so often arise in brain injury cases.

Mr Norris will bring us up to speed on the medicine and Henry Charles will provide insight into Davies v Frimley in which he acted for the claimant. John-Paul Swoboda will provide an analysis of the law relating to material contribution in brain injury cases.

Following on from Mr Norris we have Mr Martin Leyland, a highly regarded consultant ophthalmologist, on 17th March 2021, then Dr John Meehan, a well-known and respected psychiatrist on 13th April 2021, then Mr Cadoux-Hudson, a leading spinal surgeon on 11th May 2021. Further details of the rest of the series will be announced nearer the time.
