We are delighted that the Rt. Hon. Sir Geoffrey Vos is confirmed as the keynote speaker. He currently serves as Chancellor of the High Court, and will take over from Sir Terence Etherton as the Master of the Rolls on 11 January 2021, following the latter’s retirement. David Greene, the President of the Law Society, said there is ‘no better judge to head the civil side of the courts in the modern age with modern issues’.
Sir Geoffrey has been said to have an ‘exceptional intellect’ and may prove more of an activist than Sir Terence. He has backed online justice and suggested the Woolf reforms to civil proceedings are ‘inadequately revolutionary’. He is the editor in chief of the White Book, the bible of civil litigation.
His keynote speech at our 2021 Expert Witness Conference will be an essential listening for all expert witnesses.
Other confirmed speakers include:
- Ben Parry-Smith, partner at Payne Hicks Beach - described in The Lawyer Hot 100 as a "protégé of Fiona Shackleton, the most feared divorce lawyer in Britain”, will discuss how to get the best out of your relationship with your instructing party.
- The Senior Costs Judge Andrew Gordon-Saker. Costs are an ever popular subject for experts and you will hear from the most senior costs judge the important changes that have happened since his excellent presentation five years ago.
- Dr Jock Mackenzie, one of the leading Clinical Negligence Lawyers in England and Wales, will deliver the medico-legal parallel session.
Registration is at 9.15am; the first session will begin at 9.45am. The last session will finish at around 17.00. Parallel sessions will take place in the afternoon where you can take part in the session most relevant to your area work – Commercial. Criminal, Family or Medico-Legal.
Further information about the conference will be published as it becomes available.
Delivery format: We have booked the Church House Conference Centre, Westminster for this event. We are also looking at delivering a hybrid conference, which combines both face-to-face and online participation. Further details will be shared with you in due course.
