Learn how to bring civil claims against the police on behalf of victims of police misconduct

The speakers, who are both experienced at bringing claims against the police, will guide you through the procedures, and common pitfalls to avoid. Topics to be covered include:

  • Procedural considerations relating to s.329 of the Criminal Justice Act 2003 (relating to clients who wish to sue the police but who have been convicted of an offence)
  • Implications of CPR Part 36 offers to settle claims
  • Who to sue when claims involve the acts of Police Community Support Officers (PCSOs)
  • Who to sue in claims for malicious prosecution
  • Limitation periods
  • An update on recent case-law

Whether you are new to police actions or are familiar with such cases, this seminar will give you a solid grounding in the procedural and technical issues involved, as well as an update on recent case-law.

Who should attend?

  • Criminal law practitioners who want to provide a full service to clients who have a claim against the police
  • Police actions lawyers

What is included?

  • 1.5 hours of fully-accredited CPD training
  • Talks prepared by two leading police claim barristers
  • Comprehensive notes for you to refer to back at the office
  • The opportunity to ask questions

After the seminar, the Garden Court Police Actions Team would be delighted if you would join them for wine and a buffet, and the chance to ask questions informally.
