As part of our Graduate Diploma in Healthcare (Risk Management and Quality) programme, the School was honoured to welcome as a guest speaker, the Rt Hon Judge Kevin Cross, Judge of the High Court and Judge in Charge of the Personal Injury List.

He presented a paper entitled 'Medical Negligence - A View from the Bench' on Wednesday 16th October 2019 in Lecture Theatre C007, UCD Health Sciences Centre.  The lecture was followed by an open discussion under Chatham House rules.

The event proved to be a high informative meeting where Mr Justice Cross provided a clear insight on the subject of Medical Negligence from his perspective as an experienced High Court Judge.

With Mr Justice Cross' kind permission, we have reproduced his address.

A copy of the transcript is also available here.

We would like to thank Mr Justice Cross for giving generously to our students and Course Director, Mr Asim Sheikh for extending a public invitation to this presentation.  The School is also indebted to Kennedy Solicitors for kindly supporting this public engagement event.
