Lunchtime Learning: Food for Thought

Lunchtime Learning: Food for Thought

By Laura E Fox

Education Lunchtime Learning Series Networking 


Earlier this year, the Law Institute of Victoria launched the first of our Lunchtime Learning series. Drawn upon a desire to produce fresh and engaging learning opportunities for our members, we simmered up a delightful new professional development event tailored to foster new network connections and cultivate educational conversations amongst members and ask questions from some of the leading experts of the profession.


In essence, Lunchtime Learning is explicitly designed to be a short gustation for legal minds eager to learn, share and network over a catered lunch offered by the LIV, while unpacking some of the most recent legislative changes and allowing professionals to remain up-to-date and compliant with their CPD requirements.


Our first Lunchtime Learning event occurred in late April this year and brought together fifty-five of our LIV members and stakeholders who specialise in migration and criminal law to discuss to visa cancellations.


Our most recent luncheon focused on the Voluntary Assisted Dying Act 2017 and was a huge success, with a turnout of thirty-five, and allowed our members to access additional learning materials, hear from the experts and prepare for the delivery of the new Act and its implications across Victoria.


The feedback for these bite-sized CPD sessions has been continuously positive, and has allowed us to produce a number of these events for the remainder of the year.


Our next luncheon, held on Wednesday 17 July, will focus on Promoter Penalty Laws and will feature a distinguished list of speakers. Come along and hear from Helen Symon QC of the Victorian Bar; and Australian Taxation Office Assistant Commissioners, Patricia Sampathy and Scott Treatt. This session will take an in-depth look at promoter penalty laws, the justification for the introduction of the laws, key cases and enforcement approaches so far and predictions for the ATO's future approaches to the law.


Lunchtime Learning sessions are:

• $110 for Members, $150 for Non-Members and discounted for CLCs

• Held once per month, from 12.30pm––2.30pm

• Fully catered and able to meet a variety of dietary needs.
