The Law Society of Western Australia
Level 5, 160 St Georges Terrace Perth

A view from the bench provides a great opportunity for junior practitioners to receive practical advice on appearing before the Supreme, District and Magistrates Court and the State Administrative Tribunal.

Highly experienced speakers will provide advice on general conduct in the courts; expectations of junior lawyers; insights into conducting pre-trial processes; and necessary documents for submission.

This is a great opportunity to engage directly with members of the Judiciary regarding the key dos and don’ts for court appearances.

There will be facilitated Q&A time at the end where attendees will have the chance to draw on the knowledge of the experienced judicial speakers.

Refreshments will be provided at the conclusion of the seminar.
