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.
