Recent events have highlighted the issue of bias in decision-making. This month’s Proctor provides a legal understanding of bias and practical steps that practitioners can take when bias is indicated. Proctor also looks at case law which illustrates growing judicial acceptance of emails as being able to form the basis of enforceable contracts. And there’s an interesting QCAT case which highlights the injurious costs implications for non-parties which successfully resist joinder applications. All this, and much more, is now available in the November edition of Proctor.
