Religious Law Conference

For the first time in the Southern Hemisphere leaders from law, academia and religion will come together in the same room to dissect the intersection of canon law and secular law. In the current climate it is important to understand what freedoms exist; what is reportable conduct; which is the appropriate forum for religious disputes; what is religious discrimination; how to have harmonious governance; how to respond to complaints against clergy; and the law governing church property.

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.
