This Wednesday, September 28, 2016, our firm's own Charles Gluckstein will be one of the special presenters at a dinner and case review hosted by the Medico-Legal Society of Toronto. It's an occasion for Toronto's doctors and lawyers to meet together as they work to advance understanding and co-operation in the intersecting areas of medicine, science, and justice.
EVENT » A Pot Pourri of Medico-Legal Cases 2016
DATE | Wednesday, September 28, 2016
TIME | 5:30 pm Reception, followed by Presentations and Dinner
PLACE | The National Club, 303 Bay Street, Toronto
The evening should prove to be an interesting one as five lawyers review cases and discuss legal developments that stand to impact the lives of patients and clients. Guests will be treated to a discussion on such topics as the impact of Ontario's New Sexual Violence And Harassment Bill 132 on health professionals, the use of credibility assessments in cases in professional disciplinary cases, and recourse to the Courts for interference with hospital privileges.
Longtime personal injury lawyer, Charles Gluckstein, will explore the medical-legal implications of driverless cars. It's a timely topic as Canada continues nine months into its ten-year pilot project to test automated cars in Ontario. Meanwhile, court judges are only beginning to struggle with questions such as the degree of liability shared by car manufacturers and drivers and Ottawa have allocated money in its spring budget to develop new rules on the use of self-driving cars.
