Law of Consultation (in-house)

CPD/APC Credits: 25

Who is it for?

The course will be delivered by Elizabeth Gammell, Director of Standards tCI and Rhion Jones LL.B, Founder Director tCI who is highly experience in the Law of Consultation. This course is essential awareness raising for local government officers, NHS Managers, Police and Crime staff and a myriad other public sector roles where it is increasingly essential to consult the public – and do so lawfully. Anyone involved with planning or infrastructure development will also find it 100% relevant – as will community groups and third sector organisations who frequently have to focus their time and resources on responding to consultations.

Course Aim

The course covers the role played by the law, key provisions from legislation and explores lessons from 20-30 cases. Participants have the use of specially prepared Case Notes covering the most important recent precedents. They will also enjoy an entertaining group exercise in which they can test their understanding against an up-to-date realistic service rationalisation scenario.
