OTC Members invited to speak on HSLA Spring Seminar Programme

A number of members of the Health & Safety Team at Outer Temple Chambers have been invited to give seminars as part of The Health & Safety Lawyers Association (‘HSLA’) spring seminar programme. This year, the programme will attract over 200 delegates across five separate seminars.

On 26 April 2018, Ben Compton QC and Tim Green gave a seminar on Dismissal & Disclosure. The event was hosted by DWF in Birmingham, and will be repeated at Osborne Clarke in London on 14 June 2018 and at Eversheds in Leeds on 21 June 2018. The talk covers the powers of the Crown Court to dismiss charges before arraignment, disclosure before arraignment, defence statements, and digital & expert disclosure.

On 17 May 2018, James Leonard and Oliver Powell gave a seminar titled: ‘Legal Professional Privilege and HSE Investigations – the rigour of SFO v ENRC Ltd in action ‘. The event was hosted by Eversheds in Manchester, and was repeated at Outer Temple Chambers in London on 23 May 2018. The seminars discussed the impact of SRO v ENRC and the Court of Appeal’s judgment in R (HSE) v Jukes.

Outer Temple Chambers continues to show its strength in health & safety work, with members providing authoritative knowledge of the specialism.
