On Wednesday 13th February David Campbell acted as Prosecution Counsel for Compliance on Trial – Health and Safety Criminal Mock Trial he helped organise with A.C.T National Ltd at the National Liberal Club in London.
The event was attended by over 70 delegates who became the Jury and were actively involved in the Judgment with the aim of this trial was to provide knowledge of the process when a criminal trial is brought to court.
It was not designed to teach law or how to conduct an investigation, but to provide a valuable insight into both the legal and prosecution process that are taken.
Being run by practicing criminal barristers, this event provides a very realistic view of the legal requirements involving working at height undertakings and the due diligence / liability process in utilising contractors.
The event closed with a discussion of the verdict and its implications, with opportunity to question the legal team and network with fellow professionals.
