"Will I be sued?!! Demystifying law, negligence and implications for outdoor instructors and technical advisors"

A half-day workshop suitable for MTA, BAIML, AMI and BMG members looking at the law relating to our industry, the principles of negligence and how we can apply them simply in our everyday activities as instructors, technical advisors and outdoor activity providers. Our emphasis is upon safety and efficiency - breaking down barriers to participating in outdoor activities in a culture where fear of lawyers being called in is becoming increasingly prevalent and sometimes preventing activities going ahead. We will have a look at case examples, relevant legal concepts and how we can apply these in the most pragmatic, practical way as outdoor practitioners in everyday work situations.

This course is run by Cat Freeman - Cat holds the MIC and IML awards and also an LLB Law degree, MA in Medical Negligence and LPC Legal Practice Course to train as a solicitor. Cat blends high level outdoor activity delivery with previous legal experience on a daily basis and very much enjoys breaking down perceived barriers to outdoor activity delivery based on fear of legal implications. Demystifying, inspiring, discussing, debating as well as making legal concepts accessible and fun to work with is the aim of this four hour course.
