Week6

Online

As our population ages, more clients are encouraged to make enduring powers of attorney, appointing someone they trust to look after their financial affairs if the need arises. Lawcover examines some of the risks practitioners face when:

  • Drafting and witnessing powers of attorney;
  • A solicitor is instructed by an attorney in relation to a transaction affecting the principal’s property; and
  • Dealing with deceased estates where there has been an active power of attorney in the period prior to death.
Recent cases, claims and practice tips for avoiding professional negligence risks will also be discussed.

Sentencing and the use of statistics - Live webinar

Week5
Online Webinar
We are proud to offer this free information session to our members.

Sentencing is a difficult process because of the many factors that judicial officers are required to take into account. Consistency in sentencing aims for uniformity of approach through the consistent application of settled principles. The Judicial Commission's Judicial Information Research System (JIRS) is a tool used by both judicial officers and practitioners to assist with navigating the sentencing landscape. This session will explain how the use of JIRS sentencing statistics and other JIRS resources can facilitate the sentencing process.
