Order Details
As a starting point, read the sentencing remarks by Mr Justice Nicol on 5th November 2013 in which the defendant Dr David Sellu was sentenced to 2 1/2 years imprisonment after being convicted of Gross Negligence Manslaughter. Compare this with the case of Grace Adeleye who was found guilty of gross negligence manslaughter in 2012 and given a 21 month suspended sentence. Analysis should include an explanation and discussion of case law, statute, other legislation, as well as academic commentary from experts in this field. Reference should be made to medical ethics as well. A comparative approach should be used by researching and comparing the law in other countries to current English law. A maximum of two other countries must be compared.
