Healthcare law, regulation and Covid-19 addressed in the Diploma in Healthcare Law
The Diploma in Healthcare Law will provide practitioners with a comprehensive overview of the law governing healthcare in this jurisdiction, as well as analysis of the relevant practice and procedure in Ireland at present, including during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Under the expert guidance of leading legal practitioners, the course will commence with an introduction to medico-legal claims handling. Constitutional and civil rights will be examined and course participants will also explore healthcare regulation, record management, and preparation for trial. The learning experience will be enhanced by practical input from the expert practitioners by way of workshops and case-study sessions. During a moot court exercise, participants will have a unique opportunity to run contested applications before a court chaired by a practising High Court judge.
The course, which begins on 25 February, is ideal for practitioners and trainees, benefitting those in a position to advise current or future clients on healthcare-related legal issues. It will also appeal to those in healthcare departments in private practice or those working in-house in regulatory bodies or other agencies. All attendees, irrespective of prior experience, will obtain a comprehensive and up-to-date overview of healthcare law and the related practice and procedure in this jurisdiction.
