Spare time: here's what I do in it

Spent a fascinating part of this evening with a Consultant Psychiatrist in Psychotherapy - one of the good guys in my view - talking about the service they offer, the questions the local service professionals have about the care proceedings / psychiatric interface - what should they worry about - should they get involved as experts in court proceedings etc. Really impressed by the commitment I was hearing to client care and the awareness of responsibility to the court process.

I would like to see more interdisciplinary opportunities like this. Why is it not a fundamental part of a lawyers' training or at least one offered generally by CPD training? Could not the GMC / RC Psych / Bar Council organise some joint training opportunities?

If not maybe I will. Any offers?
