This workshop is designed to help practitioners understand the parameters and secrets to drafting effective pleadings. Well drawn pleadings can prevent costly interlocutory disputes and provide a basis to embark on successful litigation. Participants draft pleadings using various fact scenarios and receive feedback and evaluation in this interactive and practical workshop.

Topics include: the rules of pleadings, statements of claim, defences and subsequent pleadings, set-offs and counter-claims, particulars, identifying faulty pleadings and drafting tips and traps.


Essentials are workshops for lawyers new to, or wanting to update knowledge in, particular skills or practice areas. These workshops aim to cover the 'essentials'.
