When confronted with an unfavourable decision, a practitioner’s first thoughts are usually of appeal. A successful litigant also turns their mind to the question of an appeal, in the context of preparing to defend their hard-won victory. But, how can you figure out whether the error is of law or of fact? What difference does it make anyway?
This CPD will examine the principles underpinning errors of law and look at practical ways to identify errors and to prepare an appeal using these principles.
