We have, as always, an excellent line up of speakers for you this year. You may remember the Lord Chief Justice talked last year about the partnership between those involved in the legal system.
One of the main considerations for many experts, is their working relationship with solicitors. The President of the Law Society will be talking to you about how crucial this partnership is. We have done many surveys of experts over the years and issues such as solicitors putting pressure on experts to change their opinion and problems over the payment of fees often come up. So, let’s see what the President has to say.
You will hear a senior lawyer from Dentons talk about how artificial intelligence is changing the legal landscape and from an experienced IT expert witness on how experts can work safely and effectively in the ever-changing digital environment.
We have again organised a debate between two King’s Counsels this year, on whether there should be an independent accreditation system for experts to ensure high standards or if the current safeguards are sufficient. There is your regular Annual Legal Update to catch you up with all the changes in case law, legislation and practice over the past year and specialist strands for experts in the commercial, criminal, and family courts and those working in medico-legal areas.
It really is a fantastic day, and as in the last couple of years, you can attend in person with all the benefits of networking or online if this is more convenient for you. I do look forward to seeing you there.
