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.

    Misbehaviour in any workplace can have devastating consequences. Sexual harassment, bullying, victimisation, discrimination in the workplace are all key risk areas.  But with so many changes in how we work in 2021, comes new challenges to traditional thinking about where the workplace begins and ends. Employee and colleague vulnerabilities are more exposed than ever, as colleagues ‘enter each other’s homes’ and private spaces to carry out work and conduct business.

Or has it become easier and riskier given the line between work and home is blurring and can lead to mistaking informality for acceptance of inappropriate behaviour.
