‘What do judges do in the Family Court? Follow me through a virtual week as a Roving Judge. Learn what goes on behind the scenes: how the family court room works and who is needed to make it work.

A judge’s approach to a case can fundamentally affect the way the parties perceive the trial as fair. What makes for a good judge? What training do they have? Do they properly reflect society’s makeup? Is diversity left at the red baize door and kept outside the corridors of power?’

Advocacy – ‘as if’ the Person Represented, or ‘for’ the Person Represented? – Gresham College

Posted March 21st, 2014 in advocacy, barristers, lectures, legal education by sally

‘UK lawyers used to think that advocacy was a God–given art. In the last 20 years – not more – they have discovered how to train advocacy, applying skills acquired from jurisdictions around the world. Analysis of how advocacy really works benefits from looking back at earlier periods, and then looking forward to today and beyond asking whether advocacy is for establishing the truth and whether the advocate is as if the person represented or simply advocating to win on the client’s behalf at almost any cost. This lecture may include practical demonstrations of examples of advocacy and may involve active engagement with the audience – if willing!’

The Sanctity Of Life Law Has Gone Too Far – Gresham College

Posted February 26th, 2014 in assisted suicide, Court of Protection, euthanasia, lectures, medical treatment by tracey

‘Professor Gillon would argue that the judgment in the case of a patient in prolonged and incurable “minimally conscious state”, that she must continue to be kept alive with artificial nutrition and hydration, despite the evidence from her loved ones that she would have rejected such treatment, manifests an excessive concern for the “sanctity of life” and inadequate concern both for patients’ prior views values and autonomy and about the use of scarce health service resources on patients whose loved ones reliably report that they would have rejected those resources had they been able to do so.’
