Delivering Effective Strategies and Proven Working Models to Enhance the Performance and Efficiency of Legal Officers in a Public Sector Setting. View the online agenda here: ABOUT THE EVENT Lawyers in the Public Sector are facing an ever changing set of challenges as legal practice, legislation and the definition of their role is subject to constant evolution. The variety of responsibilities and duties in this environment covers the full spectrum of the legal profession from statutory interpretation over legislative drafting, to law enforcement. While solicitors in Australia have a very good knowledge of the law and legal procedure, it is often a challenge to distinguish policy from legislation or to apply elementary advocacy skills when arguing a case. As research shows, it can be problematic to identify the client when advising in a multi-portfolio department, or to make the right decision when confronted with a conflict of interest between the “client” and the court. The 5th Annual National Public Sector Legal Officers’ Forum 2014 will provide an update of recent legislative changes, present case studies to gain insight into the modus operandi of other government departments, demonstrate successful communication strategies and give inspirational advice in ethical questions from some of the most successful Lawyers, Attorneys and Justices in Australia.
