Date: 15/05/2020 CPD: 30 minutes Cost: Free Venue: Webinar via Zoom

As part of a series of webinars by the 2TG Product Liability Team Dr Vinit Khurana QC (Scot.) explores the learned intermediary rule and the resulting interplay between product liability and informed consent (following Gee and Montgomery).

Sam Stevens primarily looks at who can be liable for a defect under Part I of the Consumer Protection Act 1987. He explores the meaning of producer, post-Brexit changes to the definition of importer and the circumstances in which a pure supplier may be liable. Sam also briefly recaps on who is able to bring a claim under Part 1 of the Act.
