The Supreme Court of Victoria and County Court of Victoria invite you to join a discussion on institutional liability litigation.
The seminar will focus on this growing area of practice and provide practical guidance on communication and case management in both jurisdictions.
Justice Andrea Tsalamandris (Supreme Court) will chair this seminar, joined by Justice Stephen O’Meara (Supreme Court), Judge Katherine Bourke (County Court), Judicial Registrar Andrew Baker (Supreme Court) and Judicial Registrar Belinda Bales (County Court).
The wide-ranging discussion will cover:
- pre-trial management, the court’s expectations, and practical tips, with a focus on institutional liability matters
- a brief overview of key cases in the institutional liability jurisdiction
- thoughts on respectful communications with the court and fellow practitioners
- tips on respectful and effective dealings with self-represented litigants.
While the discussion will be predominantly focussed on institutional liability litigation, it will also provide practical tips likely to be of benefit for all practitioners practising in the Common Law Divisions of the Supreme and County Courts.
This hybrid event will be held online and in-person on Thursday 24 August 2023 from 9-10am in the Banco Court (Court 1) of the Supreme Court, 210 William Street Melbourne. In-person attendance is encouraged, but space is limited.
