Litigation Workshop: what to do when things go wrong

Monday 11th March, 2019 4:30 pm – Monday 11th March, 2019 6:30 pm
The Law Society of Western Australia
Level 5, 160 St Georges Terrace PERTH

In litigation, things don’t always go to plan with last minute changes or the unexpected occurring.  Join us for a workshop designed to provide practical advice on what to do when:

  • the day before a contested hearing you learn that your opponent has briefed a barrister that acted for your client 6 months ago on a direct access brief
  • you go to receive a civil judgment and the judge has unexpectedly ruled against your client
  • your client is sentenced to an actual term of imprisonment and the corrective services officers start to circle

This workshop is delivered by a panel of barristers and lawyers with a range of experience and practice areas. It is designed to give lawyers within the first 5 years of practice practical advice and tips needed when practising in litigation.

Level: General

Refreshments will be provided.

Presented in association with the Asian Australian Lawyers Association
