Donoghue v Stevenson is one of the most celebrated cases in legal history and is often just affectionately referred to as the case of the snail and the ginger beer. This seminar looks behind the scenes by referring to some of the original court papers and documents such as Mrs Donoghue’s medical records. Was there ever a snail in the bottle of ginger beer?
