Litigation: the enduring role of the commercial court in professional negligence dispute resolution
The commercial court continues to offer a very high quality and effective form of dispute resolution in professional negligence cases. Garry Borland QC will examine some recent commercial court case-law and practice in this area, and assess whether arbitration really offers a credible alternative.
Iain Ferguson, QC
The Skilled Witness
Chris Paterson, Advocate
Professional liability to third parties: law or policy
Chris considers whether the law relative to professionals’ duties of care to third parties is simply grounded in policy or can readily be reduced to delictual principle.
