Australian sanction laws impose restrictions on activities relating to particular countries, goods and services, and persons and entities. In this presentation, the Sanctions Section of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) will explain the relevance of Australian sanction laws to businesses and other Government agencies, and how you may be able to apply for a sanctions permit to authorise an activity that would otherwise be prohibited.
In this seminar, Deputy Chief Justice Faulks will review and discuss some of the fundamental rules of evidence, in particular rules relating to hearsay evidence, opinion evidence, tendency evidence, and the rules in Jones v Dunkel and Browne v Dunn. His Honour will draw upon examples from practice to illustrate some commonly made mistakes and ways in which those mistakes can be avoided. There will also be an opportunity for participants to quiz his Honour on tricky aspects of evidence law.
