Hampshire Law Society Civil Litigation Seminar

Seminar Start date: Thursday 9th May 2019

No.18 are delighted to announce that  Barnaby Large (2007) Francis Payne & John Franklin (2016) are speaking at The Hampshire Law Society Civil Litigation Seminar on the 9th May 2017. 


Barnaby Large (2007) :  “A Tactical Guide for Employees in Receipt of a Bad Reference”

“Barnaby will be exploring the options available to employees who receive a negative reference both prior to and following receipt by a new employer.

The seminar will consider a brief summary of the current law concerning the topic, steps to try to resolve a dispute without litigation and building a case for trial.”


Francis Payne (2014) :  Possessions

“S36 Admin Justice Act 1970 – does it apply following the expiration of a mortgage term?”    

This seminar will consider briefly the law relating to possession proceedings, whether the court can adjourn/stay/suspend a possession in circumstances where the mortgage term has expired (with reference to LBI HF v Stanford [2015] EWHC 3131) and what steps can be taken by Defendants in order to persuade the court to exercise such its discretion.   


John Franklin (2016): Anonymity Orders and Human Rights

 In Justyna Zeromska-Smith v United Lincoln Hospitals NHS Trust [2019] EWHC 552 (QB),  Spencer J gave insightful guidance on anonymity orders in civil proceedings.

The starting position for civil proceedings remains one of openness, enabling the public to know what is going on and who is involved in a case.  Spencer J’s judgment was notable from a human rights perspective as it recognised the range of Article 10 not only protecting the freedom of the press to report on what they want, but also as protecting journalistic style.

John Franklin examines the issues.
