Reforms and Recent Developments

  • The Mental Health Legislation in Practice: A Review 12 Months On
    • In March 2021 the new provisions in section 14 of the Mental Health and Cognitive Impairment Forensic Provisions Act came into effect, designed to make significant changes to the finding of mental illness, the making of diversion orders and allowing for clearer determinations. This session will examine how the new legislation is working in practice.
  • When Yes means Yes:  Reforms to Consent Laws in Sexual Assault
    • The newly announced sexual assault consent reforms go further than the NSW Law Reform Commission recommendations and move the goal posts significantly in determining whether a complainant has given consent to sexual activity. This session will examine why this legislation has been a long time coming and what it will mean in practice for both complainants and accused.
  • NSW Criminal Law Legislative and Case Update and Developments
    • This session will provide an update into new laws and proposed legislation impacting on criminal practice in New South Wales

Courtroom Practice and Procedure

  • Not Child’s Play: Preparing for Criminal Cases Involving Children
    • Preparing for a criminal trial has its challenges, but never more so when children are involved as victims and/or witnesses. This session provides a guide to practitioners on the key essentials for child representation, giving evidence and general trial management in those circumstances.
  • Seeking the ICO Option in Sentencing
    • The Intensive Corrections Order scheme has, since its inception in 2018, resulted in a far more stringent and tailored order as an option for avoiding jail. This session will examine the key elements of the ICO scheme and how the courts have dealt with the change.
  • Navigating the Conviction Appeal Process from the Local to District Court
    • The rights of appeal from a decision of the Local Court to the District Court can appear straightforward on paper, but in practice the process can present considerable challenges, particularly following the recent decision in Hunyh v R [2021] NSWCCA 148. This session will examine the appeal process and provide advice to practitioners on factors which may impact the jurisdiction of the appeal court.

In addition, all delegates will receive the following on demand video webinars.  These webinars are being recorded in February and will be provided online by end February 2022 for you to view at your leisure by 31.3.22.

  2. Tips and Traps for Local Court Appearances (professional skills)
