It’s not you, it’s me: Ethical return of briefs


Webinar - 20 July 2022

You have a week before a hearing and the client insists on you running an argument you think is untenable. Or your instructing solicitor has not briefed you with the material you need to run a trial. Or maybe everything in the matter is just a bit off, in a way you can’t put your finger on. Can you return the brief? Should you? If so, how?

Join special guest the Hon. Justice Paul Brereton AM RFD and co-panellists, Carol Webster SC, Jennifer Shaw of Bartier Perry, with chair, Brenda Tronson, as they discuss how to manage the ethical quandaries that can arise in deciding whether to return a brief and the best ways to do so.
