29 May 2012 by

On Wednesday 27 June, One Crown Office Row is hosting an informative and entertaining evening examining the present state of the law relating to freedom of speech in the workplace. The centrepiece will be a mock trial, set in the employment tribunal, which will cover whistleblowing, dismissal and human rights obligations.

  • The seminar will be chaired by Martin Forde QC, who has extensive experience of workplace disputes, in particular in the healthcare sector.
  • The evening’s judge will be Martin Downs, an Employment Judge since 2002, who has expertise in all aspects of employment law.
  • Counsel for the parties will be Robert Kellar and Alasdair Henderson, members of 1COR’s employment team and regular advocates in the ET and appellate courts.
  • Marina Wheeler, a senior member of the team, will give an introductory talk on recent developments and the legal framework.

This event will be registered for 1.5 CPD points and debate, drinks and snacks will of course follow. Doors open at 5:30pm for a 6pm start.

There are still a few places remaining to attend this event. If you are currently a legal practitioner and would like to attend please contact Charlotte Barrow, Marketing Executive at One Crown Office Row on stating your name and organisation. Places will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.
