Criminal

The criminal law in Australia is constantly evolving, and accordingly, it's an important area to ensure you are up to date on. As a busy criminal lawyer, it can be hard to stay on top of the latest criminal cases and judgements, both Victorian criminal cases and those from other jurisdictions. Our CPD criminal law courses can help to update you on criminal law cases and developments in the area. We have many different types of criminal law CPD courses on offer, from criminal law seminars to criminal law conferences and workshops. Our courses can assist with anything from refreshing the basic principles of criminal law, to taking a deeper look at the purpose of criminal law, the ways in which it is practiced and how it is applied in different contemporary circumstances. Leo Cussen's criminal CPD courses are an essential for every criminal lawyer, and can make earning your CPD points an informative, interactive and worthwhile experience.

    Client relationships are built on trust and mutual respect. It can be simple yet avoidable to unintentionally cause offence to clients through lack of understanding of cultural sensitives. With clients coming from a diverse range of cultural and religious backgrounds it is more important than ever that lawyers are equipped to foresee, and act appropriately in varying situations. While this can be difficult in person, it can be even more difficult meeting a client for the first time online. Although technology may help on some occasions, it can sometimes hinder client relationship development.

    Throughout this present COVID-19 era, practitioners have had to come to terms with virtual client meetings, social distancing and virtual hearings. As the pandemic continues to impact us all, virtual hearings and the use of technology in court proceedings will likely to continue into the future. While there may have been some leniency afforded to practitioners at the beginning of the pandemic when it came to technology, appearance and etiquette, that time has now passed and it is business as usual for virtual hearings.
