In this seminar/webinar, His Honour Judge Michael Gething of the District Court of Western Australia, and Dr Pat Saraceni, Director of Litigation and Dispute Resolution at Clifford Chance, will discuss the role of subpoenas in modern practice.

Subpoenas are a powerful tool for evidence gathering and in the administration of justice. This presentation will explore the principles and procedures for issuing and challenging subpoenas. It will discuss both subpoenas to produce documents and subpoenas to give evidence. It will also provide practical guidance on those matters. Specifically the seminar will summarise the requirements to be satisfied, and will explore:

  • the grounds to challenge;
  • current cases and trends; and
  • useful tips and traps to bear in mind.
