Disclosure is one of the most important issues in litigation and it is the approach of both the instructing solicitor and the litigant to their respective disclosure obligations that is often a key factor in the ultimate success, or demise, of a case.

This seminar will move through a number of the key issues concerning disclosure namely

  • a brief analysis of the authorities relied upon
  • an update on the more weird and wonderful (and not so well-known) authorities that can be of significant assistance
  • case developments as to disclosure in both Family Law and other jurisdictions
  • obligations generally and the consequences of non-disclosure
  • the revolution of e-discovery and its consequences
  • making and responding to disclosure requests; and
  • utilising Notices to Admit and Notices to Produce
