The Institute for European Tort Law

Vienna, Austria

 

The English Common Law has long adopted an indulgent and protective
view towards the liability of medical practitioners. In particular, the
disclosure of risks was long regarded as a clinical matter and so
practitioners were permitted a wide degree of discretion. In March 2015
the United Kingdom Supreme Court overturned 35 years of authority and
declared a new basis for liability flowing from the failure to declare a
known risk to a patient. This talk will critically examine that process
and situate the new law within the existing structures of the common
law.

Wyng-Hatton Lecture, University of Hong Kong

Is it possible to incur civil or criminal liability for transmitting your illness to another person? And as a matter of principle, should it be possible?

In recent years this topic has generated a heated discussion in the UK. Ten years ago, the Criminal Division of the (English) Court of Appeal held that a person may commit the statutory offence of maliciously inflicting grievous bodily harm if, knowing he is HIV positive, he has unprotected sexual intercourse with someone who is unaware of his condition, and thereby infects them.

Whilst welcomed by some, this ruling has been sharply criticised by others. They say that it is unfair to penalise the sick, and they argue that, at least in certain situations, the responsibility for preventing the spread of infection should rest upon the shoulders of the well – who should take steps to avoid catching the disease – rather than on the sick, to avoid spreading it.

In his lecture Professor Spencer will examine this debate and give his views on the merits of the respective arguments.
