This webinar comprises the first of a two-part presentation focusing on the science behind injury interpretation and death investigation: forensic pathology. Dr Matthew Orde – consulting forensic pathologist and Clinical Associate Professor at the University of British Columbia, former Medical Director of Autopsy Pathology at Vancouver General Hospital, dually-trained in medicine & law and called to the Bar of England and Wales – will lead the audience through some of the key aspects of forensic pathology and contemporary autopsy practice, drawing on real case material and with an emphasis on some of the more controversial topics.
This first session will provide an overview of death investigation systems, and lead into an exploration of the relevant basic science and an introduction to patterns of injury.
Our moderator will be Richard Fowler, Q.C.
Participants in this webinar may claim up to 1.5hrs of CPD with LSBC. This webinar is organized in collaboration with the UBC Innocence Project and the Criminal Defence Advocacy Society.
