The ACT Law Society represents, advances, and defends the interests of an independent legal profession in the ACT. 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 ACT Law Society is proud to present our three-day Practice Management Workshop. This workshop is a requirement for solicitors who are applying for Unrestricted Practising Certificates in order to practise as a partner, legal practitioner director, sole practitioner, or solicitor on the record for a corporation or government department. The workshop covers topics that are essential to the successful operation of an effective legal practice (private or government) and sustainable business.
The ACT Mental Health Act 2015 came into force on 1 March 2016. The new Act ushers in a change in culture in the way the system deals with people who have a mental health disorder or mental illness. A panel of expert speakers will present the changes brought in by the new Act, and discuss how the roles of lawyers have changed under the new regime, and how the new Act has impacted on the ACAT.
