Key themes:

Legal Technology Forum

Please join legal sector colleagues from around Australia at the first Legal Technology Forum focussed on technology and access to justice.

The Forum has been developed by a group of legal sector peers interested in opportunities to improve access to justice through technology. The Forum is hosted by Justice Connect, in advance of the NACLC Just Futures  Conference.

Australasian Lawyer Women in Law Summit 2018

Women in the legal profession face a range of challenges from unconscious bias and low retention rates to underrepresentation in leadership roles and barriers to career progression. While awareness of the issues is increasing, improvements are slow so practical steps are needed at the individual as well as firm or organisational level to support the advancement and retention of women lawyers.

Specialist Legal Conference

For over a decade, The College of Law has held the Specialist Legal Conference. Located at the Hilton Hotel in Sydney’s vibrant CBD, this year’s conference is designed to enable experienced practitioners to ‘stay ahead, and stand out’ from the crowded legal profession.

The College of Law believes this conference is more than your ‘everyday conference,’ bringing practitioners together across five concurrent streams in the specialist areas of:

Mandatory CPD - Ethics and Professional Responsibility

Richard Susskind in his most recent offering on the technological revolution confronting lawyers predicts an end-times scenario. Dr Michael Nancarrow's prognosis is more hopeful but equally challenging. Tomorrow’s lawyers (which includes both those in practice as well as those entering practice) face challenges of a different complexion to what awaited lawyers in previous periods. Technology will intrude into much of the process and rountinised aspects of law practice. The daily work, tasks and decisions of tomorrow’s lawyers will take a different turn in many ways.

Mandatory CPD - Professional Skills

"Without it [EQ], a person can have the best training in the world, an incisive, analytical mind, and an endless supply of smart ideas, but he still won’t make a great leader.” Daniel Coleman, HBR article, 1998.

Lawyers in particular can set themselves apart from the competition, and contribute to their practice growth strategy by developing their EQ skills. With a positive impact being reported in relation to communication, client relationships, staff management and resilience, it’s no wonder EQ is often the go-to skill for successful lawyers.

Foundations in Immigration Law

Are you an Australian solicitor interested in practising immigration law? The pending removal of legal practitioners from the regulatory scheme that governs migration agents means every Australian legal practitioner will be able to provide migration law advice without being registered as a migration agent with the MARA.

Nomos and The College of Law have teamed up to provide you with ‘Foundations in immigration law’. A highly interactive workshop teaching the fundamentals that are essential when moving into immigration law practice.
