Monday 16 June 2014

A final year Salford Business School student has published a case review in a renowned peer-reviewed journal.

Paul Skowron, who has also secured funded doctoral study at the University of Manchester, has now seen his piece, entitled 'Evidence and Causation in Mental Capacity Assessments PC v City of York Council' published in the Medical Law Review.

The Medical Law Review presents articles of international interest which provide thorough analysis and comment on a wide range of topical issues that are an authoritative source of reference for academics, lawyers, legal and medical practitioners. The commentary section offers in-depth exploration of topical aspects in the relevant fields.

Julie Adshead, Director of Law Programmes, said: “Paul has made a fantastic start to a promising career as an academic by publishing a peer-reviewed article in a leading journal in his field, while still an undergraduate.

“Subject to achieving his first class honours degree, Paul has a scholarship to study for his doctorate at an institution with world-leading expertise in his particular subject area. Well done, Paul!”
