Event description

Description

In this seminar our guest speaker, The Honourable Mr Nick Francis, will explore some of the ethical considerations he faces when dealing with end of life cases. The seminar, run by Penningtons Manches in conjunction with Ethical Reading and Grant Thornton, will help us to learn from the approach people like Nick take to the most difficult ethical decisions when we approach ethical issues and questions in a business context.

Since his appointment to the High Court Bench in 2016, Nick has overseen almost every type of family law case and also sits in the Court of Protection. In 2017 he heard the very public and tragic Charlie Gard case, in which the Pope, Donald Trump and social media had a role to play. Since then, he has been involved with more end of life cases and those involving transgender families.

The seminar will start at 6.30pm with networking and a short introduction from Gill Ringland to the work of Ethical Reading before our keynote speaker, Nick Francis at 7.20pm. We will close the evening with drinks, canapés and networking.
