Details

This is a legal conference that satisfies New South Wales, Victorian and Queensland Solicitor's and New South Wales Barrister's 2016/17 annual CPD requirements in one day.

Please note, unlike Marbury Chambers' monthly free legal seminars, this conference is NOT free. There is a fee. That fee is $220.00 for the day, inclusive of goods and services tax. This fee is payable here by credit card (Visa, Mastercard or American Express) or via PayPal.

We will be starting at 10:00 am and going straight through the day. You will be fed and watered during the day. There will be seven presentations, resulting in a potential maximum of 10 points for the day. Each CPD strand will be covered at least once during the day.

To assist you in meeting your professional obligations, Meetup will keep a record of your attendance at these CPD events so long as you are a registered member of this group (just access the information in your 'My profile' tab). The following is the draft schedule for the day. The schedule is subject to change. The titles of the presentations, names of presenters and further details will be progressively updated.
