This course focuses on the basic principles of medical law and specifically on medical negligence. Increasingly, more attorneys are pursuing these types of claims without having received training in this sui generis type of delict - the principles of which differ from other delicts. Participants will learn, amongst other things, about these differences and how to approach litigation in medical law in a practical manner.

This three-month course is exclusively presented online and there are no contact sessions. It is a flexible equivalent to a full-time, three-day, attendance course.

This online course is a must for all practitioners venturing into the field of Medical Negligence, often because of a decrease in RAF work, as especially the merits aspect of this type of work is so vastly different than other forms of delict. All candidate attorneys who have not done the new online PLT Introduction to Medical Law Course should complete this course as well.

This is a full online course consists of three webinars, each focusing on a specific requirement of medical negligence and aspects of medical law in general. The material is presented in an interactive format, supplemented by written material for downloading from eLEADer platform - LEAD’s online learning portal.
