APIL’s annual clinical negligence conference 2022 (Hybrid)
Celtic Manor Resort, Newport, South Wales
Tuesday, 20 September - Thursday, 22 September

Last two sponsorship opportunities available!

Over the last two decades, this specialist residential conference has grown from strength to strength and for 2022, we are delighted to be heading back to the prestigious five star Celtic Manor Resort in Newport South Wales for our 20th residential event!

Medical consultants, expert witnesses, and leading practitioners will come together for another packed programme, providing valuable specialist insight into clinical negligence cases, concentrating on the theme of 'Neurology, neurosurgery and neurorehabilitation'.

This event is commonly known as a ‘must attend’ event for many clinical negligence lawyers. The conference programme is geared towards clinical negligence specialists and this provides you with the perfect opportunity to network with key decision makers, partners and senior partners.

Residential conferences

In 2022, APIL’s residential conferences will also be held as hybrid events, which means that delegates will have the opportunity to either attend in person or alternatively, they can view the event virtually, via APIL’s conference app. All delegates will have full access to the conference app and this new feature will play an important role in the event, giving our sponsors and exhibitors even more opportunity than ever before to keep in touch with the conference attendees.
