2017/2018 CPD year

Part A - The neuroscience behind good client outcomes

Class-leading neuroscience undertaken by Monash University across a range of disciplines was conjoined with comprehensive case analysis by Lexon to deconstruct examples from recent claim experiences.

Part B - Beyond technical legal competence: What value the client of the future will want from you

Part C - The networked lawyer: Conscious, conscientious, connected

Contemporary legal practice would be impossible without digitally mediated networks, but in a profession trained to identify and avoid risk, digital networks have posed a particular problem for lawyers. Kate draws on the law, professionalism in the law, and the world of digital networks to present an achievable, positive model of conscious and conscientious connection for the networked lawyer.


Part D - What every business owner needs to know to protect themselves from viruses, hackers and other cyber-security threats

According to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission $229 million was estimated to be 'scammed' out of Australians in 2015 with small to medium businesses being a primary focus for cyber-criminal activities.

Join our expert presenter as he demystifies the cyber-underworld and provides you and your firm with actionable steps you can implement to minimise your risk of being a victim!


Part E - The future of legal practice: Are you keeping up?

Keeping up with the rapid change of technology and the impact it has on the operation of a business is a challenge for any organisation. This practical session will provide ideas on how you can future proof your business.

4 CPD points

2017/2018 CPD year


This DVD contains six sessions from the Core stream of QLS Symposium 2017.


Part A - Embracing New Law

New Law is coming. Traditional business models and the delivery of legal service are being transformed to meet client needs and there are many opportunities for lawyers to embrace the New Law model. The key takeaways from this session will be:

  • what is New Law?
  • how New Law delivers legal services
  • start up from a blank slate - business model and delivery
  • adapting traditional structures to New Law
  • investing in New Law.

Part B - Six keys to growing the top and bottom line of your legal practice

Growth is essential for every practice - but how do you get that done while wearing all the other hats of a practice owner? In this strategy packed session, you'll learn the key concepts to create consistent growth.


Part C - Adrift in a revenue sea: Survival techniques for the lone practitioner

This paper will explore the diverse occasions when legal practitioners encounter revenue-related issues in practice. With the 'knowledge gap' which has arisen as a consequence of the removal of taxation law as a mandatory unit of study in law school programs, this problem has now become manifest. The paper will look at practical solutions to the dilemma and strategies which practitioners can employ, in both the short and long-term, to bridge the gap and to enable them to act in the best interests of their clients without the need to employ the services of accountants or financial advisors.


Part D - Accounting shenanigans: How are financial statements manipulated and what do lawyers need to look out for?

Accounting isn't black and white - it requires judgement. Financial information can be pessimistically, optimistically or even fraudulently prepared. How do you know which information you are dealing with? Join our expert presenter as he looks at some of the top ways earnings are manipulated and how accounting shenanigans led to some of the world's largest corporate collapses.


Part E - What every business owner needs to know to protect themselves from viruses, hackers and other cyber-security threats

According to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission $229 million was estimated to be 'scammed' out of Australians in 2015 with small to medium businesses being a primary focus for cyber-criminal activities. Why are they targeting you? What do they want? Join our expert presenter as he demystifies the cyber-underworld and provides you and your firm with actionable steps you can implement to minimise your risk of being a victim!
