The ever-increasing strains placed on local government, both in terms of finance and the need to demonstrate value for money, inevitably draw local authorities into litigation. There is no doubt that claims are rising, many remain unpredictable, and cases are increasing in their size as well as their value. The pressure is greater than ever for local authorities to manage litigation efficiently and cost-effectively. This informative and interactive course delivered in conjunction with 7BR is designed to bring practitioners up to date with some key areas of local authority litigation, and will include:

  • Enterprise Act claims
  • Proceeds of Crime Act
  • Non-delegable duty of care and fundamental dishonesty
  • Judicial review
  • Inquests
  • Care costs recovery

Target audience

This course is designed for anyone involved in litigation within a local authority.
