SCIL Exhibition and Conference Day 2022

Our video brings to life the highlights of the 2022 Exhibition and Conference Day on 19 May 2022, featuring some of our speakers, executive committee, exhibitors and delegates. It was a hugely successful day at our conference venue, the Birmingham Millennium Point, bringing together lawyers from all over the country. We enjoyed a mix of diverse eminent speakers from a multitude of backgrounds, as well as breakout sessions. We discussed current issues and met with a whole range of exhibitors.

SCIL Chair, Paul Rumley, speaking at the 2022 Exhibition & Conference Day

Paul Rumley discusses his concerns on the proposed Fixed Recoverable Costs regime for clinical negligence cases and why this should be resisted.

 Sir Bob Neill MP, Chair of the Justice Committee at The SCIL 2022 Exhibition & Conference Day

Having Sir Bob Neill MP speak to our members was a privilege. Sir Bob is against what he believes is interfering with patients’ access to justice. Instead, he supports the prevention of medical accidents in the first place. He believes that patients representing themselves in person will clog up the court and increase expenses. He thinks this is the risk if the government “shoots the messenger” and reduces access to solicitors.
