CPD Seminar: Justice and Efficiency: The Challenges of Complex Litigation

Please join us for the Adelaide’s Law School’s next CPD Seminar ‘Justice and Efficiency: The Challenges of Complex Litigation’.

Complex commercial litigation presents courts with the challenge of doing justice between the parties in a reasonably efficient way while using public resources responsibly. Judges have responded to this challenge by developing innovative procedural techniques that aim to reconcile all the competing objectives.  This seminar draws on interviews with judges in five Australian jurisdictions to explain both the challenge posed by complex commercial litigation, and the techniques judges use to meet these challenges.

When: Tuesday, 19 May 2015.

Time: 7.15am for 7.30am start. A light breakfast will be provided.

Where: Level 5, Ligertwood Building, Adelaide Law School.
