Thursday 23rd February, 2017 4:30 pm – Thursday 23rd February, 2017 6:30 pm
The Law Society of Western Australia
Level 5, 160 St Georges Terrace PERTH

Briefing barristers is an important but often overlooked skill. It is not often taught but simply ‘picked up’ along the way. Hear from experienced presenters from the bar and the amalgam on how to get the brief ‘right’ first time, thus ensuring your client obtains maximum benefit. Learn how to work collaboratively with your barrister by knowing what helps them, how to save time, what they need and what they don’t need. Hear examples of ‘best practice’ and what to do and not do when briefing.

Solicitors of all levels will find this practical seminar useful to brush up on skills in this important area.
