This ever-evolving area and ongoing interpretation of the Act requires that practitioners be up to date with the requirements and risks associated with non-compliance.
This session will address how far the Act is affecting the conduct of negotiations, procedure and litigation in Victoria as well as significant cases up to March 2019.

Recent national and international cyberattacks show that no person, law firm, business or organisation is immune from a potential attack.

Cyber hackers, scammers and criminals continue to evolve methods of infiltration and attack. It is imperative to keep up with the latest technology and protection methods to thwart potential problems.
