The Queensland Asian Australian Lawyers Association branch is holding its inaugural Litigation Workshop on Thursday morning 8 November 2018. Tea, coffee, and a light breakfast will be provided.
The topic will be “What to Do When Things Go Wrong”. What do you do when:
- the day before a contested hearing you learn that your opponent has briefed a barrister that acted for your client 6 months ago on a direct access brief?
- you go to receive a civil judgment and the judge has unexpectedly ruled against your client
- your client is sentenced to an actual term of imprisonment and the corrective services officers start to circle?
The Workshop will be delivered by a panel of barristers from a range of experience and practice areas. It is designed to give lawyers within the first 5 years of practice practical advice and tips they need when practising in litigation.
Date: Thursday 8 November 2018
Venue: Baker McKenzie, Level 8, 175 Eagle Street, Brisbane QLD 4000
Time: 7.15am for a 7.45am start
