Civil Remedies in Family Proceedings

This March, St John’s Chambers’ Family Practice Group invite you to their free CPD approved training session on ‘Civil remedies in family proceedings.’

The session is primarily aimed at care practitioners and will address the two avenues of applying for financial compensation: negligence (following the recent Court of Appeal decision in CN & Anor v Poole Borough Council [2017] EWCA Civ 2185) and via the Human Rights Act 1998. There will be a detailed consideration of the law relating to Human Rights Act claims and a discussion regarding procedure and potential cost consequences following the controversial High Court decisions in 2017.

Members of our Family Practice Group, Sarah Phillimore and Asha Pearce-Groves will be speaking on; Applying for financial compensation: Negligence and the Human Rights Act and Applying for financial compensation: The Human Rights Act.
