Uniform Law - Common questions

02 Jul 2015

Yesterday was Victoria Day – the 164th anniversary of Victoria becoming a separate colony to New South Wales. We celebrated the event by inaugurating a new Governor – Her Excellency Linda Dessau AM. Ironically, the day of separation was also the day of unification for the legal profession, with the commencement of the Legal Profession Uniform Law Application Act 2014 (Vic) (Uniform Law), which marks the beginning of a common legal services market for lawyers in Victoria and New South Wales.

Is there a bully in your midst?

24 Jun 2015

There’s been a lot of talk about bullying lately – particularly the very public bullying of Australian Human Rights Commissioner Gillian Triggs. I have always admired and respected Professor Triggs as a highly qualified and experienced leader in the legal profession. However, her composure and strength in the face of months of relentless workplace bullying has elevated my admiration and respect to awe – and it has elevated Professor Triggs to something of a rock star in the legal profession.

Animal welfare – why should we care?

 YL 18 Jun 2015

The YLS Community Issues Committee has formed a sub-committee to look at various issues surrounding animal law and animal welfare. Since its formation, the Animal Welfare Reference Group has considered topics such as breed-specific legislation, live exports and the use of scientific testing on animals. Another issue the reference group has considered is duck hunting in Victoria: the legislation supporting duck hunting, and whether the Victorian government should ban the activity.

How to talk to your clients about money

18 Jun 2015

“Don't mention the war. I mentioned it once, but I think I got away with it all right.”

When I think of lawyers talking to clients about money, I think of Basil Fawlty, desperately trying to avoid mentioning the war to German tourists. We avoid, we hedge, we duck and weave and, when we can finally no longer avoid it, we mumble something under our breath or hand over a lengthy costs agreement and then scuttle away in embarrassment.

Surviving in the law with an unpronounceable name

10 Jun 2015

You are standing before the Judge for your first “real” appearance. Your palms are sweaty, your face is flushed and there are so many handwritten notes on your once perfect outline of submissions that it’s almost impossible to read. The Judge looks at you, looks at the appearance sheet, then looks up at you again and says, “Yes Ms…errr…” Big sigh of relief. This is familiar territory. You’ve been repeating, explaining and putting up with atrocious pronunciations of your name since the first day of primary school.
