2017 has already yielded a rich harvest of judgments from the Supreme Court, Court of Appeal and High Court. The Supreme Court, as recently as June, handed down an important decision on the duty of care and negligent misstatement. The Court of Appeal has addressed the RRR in assessing damages awards. Significant judgments on occupiers’ liability, defamation and PIAB have also been delivered. The issue of employers’ liability for bullying in the context of disciplinary proceedings has been addressed by the Supreme Court.
The Law School of Trinity College Dublin is organising a conference to consider all the recent developments on Saturday 15th July, from 9:30 to 1 pm. The conference will be chaired by the Hon. Mr. Justice Liam McKechnie of the Supreme Court. The team of speakers have particular expertise in their chosen areas.
