Lord of the Gavel tells all

20 Jun 2013

August 22. A sad day for some (i.e. me). But for one – the anointed one – the brightest of days. For on August 22, I must relinquish the gilded Gavel-Crown that these past 7368 wondrous hours has rested awkwardly and uncomfortably on my head, and surrender it to a new head, a worthier head, a funnier head.

Knowing your limits

20 Jun 2013

As part of my role as President, I have been making my way around various suburban and country law association meetings. I often give a speech following Phil Nolan, chair of the LIV’s property law section, and a lawyer at the Legal Practitioners’ Liability Committee (LPLC). Apart from the fact that he doles out chocolates as part of his LPLC spiel, what stands out from his talks is how easy it is to make a mistake when trying to run a busy legal practice. While LPLC cover helps give some peace of mind, it does not address the potential for that one-off catastrophic claim that may destroy your practice. That’s where the LIV’s Limitation of Liability Scheme fits in.

The real reason you became a lawyer

30 May 2013

A few weeks ago during an interview for a Young Lawyer’s blog, the LIV President Reynah Tang told me that the most rewarding thing about being a lawyer is being able to make a difference in people's lives. It's why most of us became interested in a career in law in the first place right?

Trying to 'budge it'

10 May 2013

The Victorian Coalition government’s 2013-14 state budget, released on Tuesday, is unfortunately a case of a band-aid solution for legal aid and the justice system. The Law Institute had been calling on the state government to make an immediate one-off $10 million injection into legal aid funding and then, via the budget, provide appropriate ongoing recurrent funding.
