Strike out and Summary Judgment Applications: their use and abuse

The jurisdiction to strike out or seek summary judgment is a vital part of a litigant’s armoury, whether they are a claimant or a defendant. It is one which has seen substantial development in recent years. In this seminar on Thursday 3rd December 2020 we consider aspects of the jurisdiction of particular interest to professional negligence practitioners

We are delighted to welcome Lady Justice Carr, the PNBA’s former chair, to chair the seminar
