  • Abuse: a review of the law around Abuse claims and a look at some recent cases
  • Local Authority legal update: A run-down of recent decisions and cases
  • PL fraud: An interactive session where delegates will be talked through a worked case study, highlighting the opportunities for Claimants to commit PL fraud, and tactics for fighting fraud
  • Tripping up the Public Liability Fraudster: the power of Data Analytics & Intelligence
