The better the brief, the better barristers appreciate solicitors, young lawyers were advised at a recent seminar.

Green’s List barristers Fiona Ryan and Matthew Stirling and clerk Michael Green were guest speakers at a seminar for Law Institute of Victoria (LIV) young lawyers on 19 October.

About 60 young lawyers attended the seminar which preceded a “Bond with the Bar” networking evening.

LIV Young Lawyers’ Section manager Donna Adams said it was the first time a seminar had been combined with the quarterly networking evening, and it had been a “smashing success”.

“The guest speakers gave a very laidback but informative presentation that had plenty of tips and tricks for keeping barristers on side.”

One of the important tips to come from the seminar was the need to provide detailed and clear briefs, she said.

“They said barristers appreciated it when cases were printed out and attached to the briefs as often they don’t have access to the administrative support that solicitors have.

“The presentation was full of handy information which normally young lawyers wouldn’t think about,” Ms Adams said.

The seminar was followed by a networking evening, which was attended by about 200 people.

Cornwall Stodart second year commercial litigation lawyer Kate Harry won the prize of a funky Crumpler bag.
