When conducting litigation, lawyers have obligations to avoid conflicts of interest, but also need to keep costs down. This seminar will discuss how to reconcile these competing obligations in light of the recent family law provision case of Miller v Taylor.

When preparing wills, lawyers have obligations when their clients have questionable capacity. This seminar discusses their extent, including whether or not to obtain medical evidence and how much weight to place on it.
