On this special episode of The Lawyers Weekly Show, produced in partnership with Blumers Personal Injury Lawyers, host Jerome Doraisamy speaks with Blumers director Noor Blumer (Director | Blumers Personal Injury Lawyers, Adjunct Professor, Faculty of Business, Government & Law | University of Canberra) about life in medical negligence law and why it is such an important practice area.

Noor details her experiences in “med neg”, including how she entered this practice area, what it involves, its critical importance to broader society, the capacity for vicarious trauma in such work, the need for transparency with lawyers entering this practice area, and how the age of coronavirus has impacted upon the work of lawyers in this space.

She also delves into the lessons she has learned, as an expert in this field (both personally and professionally), the extent to which class actions are a feature of med neg law, what constitutes best practice for lawyers in this space, why there is no room for “sloppy” practitioners with such work, and why the impact that such legal work has on the broader health system remains such an exciting prospect moving forward.
