Dr Simon Fox QC, a medically qualified clinical negligence barrister, will give an overview of court etiquette and processes, before commencing an evidence-based role play scenario.

The purpose of this intensive training session, with a maximum of 6 delegates, is to encourage experts to be confident in their knowledge of Court procedure, and in their ability to assist the Court by presenting their evidence in a clear and concise manner.

The witness familiarisation will be videoed and used in the feedback session.  Once the session is over the video will be deleted.   

In order to ensure the barrister complies with Bar Council Guidance, preparation and compliance on the part of each delegate is required.  The full requirements can be read here.

In summary:

Each delegate is asked to provide us with 6 medical reports from completed cases.  We need to receive these three full weeks prior to the course date. They will be used as the basis of a mock trial bundle, on which you will be cross examined.

Breach of duty or causation reports are most likely to furnish us with substantial material for the role play, while shorter condition and prognosis reports are not as well suited to this process.

The reports must bear no similarity to current or forthcoming cases and must be completely anonymised.  They can be reports which you have created on a fictional scenario.  Please talk to us when booking if you would like help and advice with this step.

Easy access to the M40 and regular rail and bus links to the rest of the country make Oxford Town Hall an ideal venue for both local and national events.
