We also protect the public interest in the ACT system of justice through the efficient regulation of the profession in accordance with the Legal Profession Act and the Society’s Rules for Solicitors.
The requirement to maintain confidentiality in the solicitor/client relationship is well known. What is perhaps less well-known or understood among our members are the circumstances in which one might conclude that the duty of confidentiality abates temporarily, permitting a solicitor to disclose information which otherwise would be regarded as a breach of client confidentiality.
This seminar will cover the legislation and some leading case law dealing with claims for Family Provision, both in the ACT and NSW. The seminar will also provide an outline of the practice and procedure in both jurisdictions for bringing or defending applications for Family Provision.
