Seminar topics

Cyber-security is everyone’s risk

Cyber fraud related notifications are a weekly occurrence at LPLC. This is not just an IT issue but a matter for everyone to understand and take steps to prevent. This session will look at the various ways cyber thieves are trying to steal money from you and the practical steps you can take to prevent it. It is important you learn about this before it happens to you.

1 CPD point – Practice management and business skills | Presenter : Stephen Bubb, Risk Manager, LPLC

Managing mortgage security risks

Acting for lenders in the suburbs can be a risky pursuit, especially if they are private lenders or the loans are within families or between associates. The security arrangements are often not taken seriously by the parties and then they sue their lawyers when the security turns out to be inadequate. This session looks at common mistakes and lessons for practitioners as property prices soften.

1 CPD point – Practice management and business skills | Presenter : Heather Hibberd, Chief Risk Manager, LPLC

I fought the law – in conveyancing

Failure to manage legal issues is the underlying cause of about 40 per cent of conveyancing claims.

In this session we will consider the five most common legislative provisions where we see claims. We will also look at some recent legislative developments to help practitioners stay on top in conveyancing matters.

1 CPD point – Substantive law | Presenter : Phil Nolan, Risk Manager, LPLC

What’s new in regulation, and what does it mean for you?

A representative from the Victorian Legal Services Board and Commissioner will discuss recent regulatory developments and policies that affect lawyers in Victoria. You will hear how and why these policies came about (including some recent case studies) and you’ll learn how these policies can help you. You’ll receive some practical tips on how to minimise the risk of a complaint, and some advice on what to do if a complaint is made against you.

1 CPD point – Ethics and professional responsibility | Presenter : a representative from the Victorian Legal Services Board and Commissioner
