Highlights of the Talk
 
Medical Negligence litigation often requires special considerations given that it will necessarily involve medical issues that, without medical experts’ assistance, legal practitioners are unfamiliar.  In medical negligence litigation, the lawyers’ role is no doubt to join the threads between the medical evidence and present the legal claim accordingly.  This task may be a challenging one that may depend on many factors.  It would be extremely useful to know the practical considerations and tips that may make the litigation process easier for the legal advisors.  This would also aide in presentation of an accurate and comprehensible case for the Court’s adjudication.
 
Recently, there had been development of the law where medical negligence involved the failure to obtained informed consent, which had completely rewrote the legal principles in relation to “breach of duty” and “causation”.  In examining the legal principles and its jurisprudence, it would shed light on how these new principles are to be applied in Hong Kong.  The programme would consist of the following parts:-
 
I.        Practical considerations in medical negligence litigation;
II.       Recent Development in medical negligence involving informed consent.
