Have you ever wanted to be able to write a medico-legal report? Have you ever had to defend a report in Court?

This two day course has been running for many years with the objective of giving consultants, GPs and nurse consultants the skills required for a medico-legal practice. The course centres around a real scenario and teaches the participants how to analyse instructions from lawyers, read case notes from a legal view, and write an expert report.

Participants have the opportunity to write a report at the end of day 1 of the course. On day 2 there is an opportunity to receive feedback on report writing from a solicitor, and undergo cross examination from a barrister in a mock court room.
