Further Details

  • Chapter Titles

    Chapter 1 – The case scenarios and principles discussed during the session will have broad application across a multitude of practice areas. You will be actively encouraged to workshop real world ethical dilemmas with the presenter such as:

    • Can you ask for payment of your legal costs if you appear in court as a witness for your former client’s matter?
    • Can you terminate the retainer days before the trial is the client fails to pay money into trust?
    • Can you still claim a lien if you already have a caveat over the client’s property?

    Presenter: Julia Frederico, formerly a lawyer in the LIV Ethics and Professional Practice Department

    Chapter 2 – How can you maximise the skills of your examiner? When your examiner visits what guidance should you expect to receive in return? Has your examiner explained where you can improve trust processes? Are the risk controls of the law practice adequate for the size and structure of the firm? Are the details included throughout the trust records sufficient to satisfy the requirements of the regulations? How can you obtain advice from your examiner about the management of the trust account?

    These are all questions pertinent to the running of a law practice and within the expertise of your examiner to answer.

    Presenter: Jolyon Dunn, formerly the compliance manager and inspector at the Law Institute of Victoria

    Chapter 3 – This session aims to help lawyers communicate exceptionally by assisting delegates to:

    • structure an idea clearly and effectively
    • successfully pitch an idea in a crowded intellectual market place
    • analyse the audience and deal with a tough crowd.
