Section 5O - Gould FULL

Level 10, 99 Elizabeth Street
Sydney New South Wales

How does a defendant clinician or hospital in a medical negligence claim establish a defence under s 5O of the Civil Liability Act 2002?

Over the last 16 years, the legal approach to determining a clinician’s liability for medical negligence has been evolving since the common law was transformed with the commencement of Part 1A of the Act.

From Dobler and McKenna to Sparks and now Gould, different judicial approaches to the legal construction of s 5O of the Act mean that there is to date no definitive formula for defendants to rely on. That said, while litigants wait for the law to become more settled, there is certainly a prudent course available that defendants should take in relation to pleading and establishing the s 5O defence.

Presented by Richard Cheney SC, Richard Sergi and chaired by Ben Bradley.

Please Join us at 5.15pm for the seminar, which will be followed by drinks and canapés.

Suppression Orders: Navigating the treacherous waters 34 Places remaining

Level 10, 99 Elizabeth Street
Sydney New South Wales

You don’t practice in crime. You’ll never need to know how to negotiate around the nightmare of suppression orders and Crime Commission notices.

Think again.

Julie Wright and Tony Thomas will give you the basics, the intermediate and the advanced. 

Sometimes, clever marketing blurbs (like this one) are underselling the reality.

In the wake of recent news reports, or lack thereof, there’s never been a hotter topic.

Security of Payments - 2018 Amendments FULL

Level 10, 99 Elizabeth Street
Sydney New South Wales

In November 2018, the NSW Parliament passed legislation amending the Building and Construction Industry Security of Payment Act 1999 (NSW). Amongst other things, those reforms reinstate the requirement for payment claims to state that they are made under the Act, abandon the concept of reference dates, significantly increase penalties and create expansive new investigation and enforcement powers.

Frank Hicks SC, Adele Carr and Declan Byrne will provide an overview of the amendments, as well as their likely impact on contract administration, adjudication and litigation.
