PLEA invites you to the first legal insight event of 2019 covering the controversial topic of LAWYER X
A police informer and defence lawyer representing gangland figures in Melbourne, Lawyer X/Informer 3838’s pseudonym has rippled through the legal community, and people want to know – what are the legal, ethical and moral consequences of a trusted legal counsel giving up her client’s information to police? How do these actions affect her role as a lawyer, and how does this reflect on the legal community more broadly?
Unfortunately due to unforeseen circumstances we have had to postpone the scheduled LGBTIQ legal insights session this Wednesday, it will be held later this year.
In its place we are excited to host a Criminal Law Insights event at the same time and location. The evening will explore topical challenges in criminal law, including the impact of new bail laws and the current public focus on offending by young people (sometimes referred to as youth gangs).
***VENUE CHANGE*** Due to unforeseen circumstances tomorrow’s event will be held Victoria Law School at 295 Queen St Melbourne in the Ground Floor Lecture Theatre.
Join our panel of legal practitioners, experts and members of the judiciary to explore the unqiue challenges posed by the complex intersection of mental health, alcohol and other drugs, and the legal system.
This presentation will provide an opportunity to understand what it means to work within these areas of law and career opportunities that are available.
Join our panel of pro bono lawyers, working in some of Australia’s largest commercial firms, as they discuss the role corporate legal firms have in improving access to justice outcomes for the wider community.
Featuring representatives from Arnold Bloch Leibler, Ashurst and Allens Linklaters this is an event not to be missed.
