Would you like to practise in migration law? Under proposed changes to the Migration Act 1958, this field will be open to all legal practitioners without the need to become registered migration agents. The October edition of Proctor explains these changes, and reports on other changes – to the Uniform Civil Procedure Rules – ushering in the era of the digital subpoena. This month’s cover story looks at concussion-related injuries on the sporting field and reveals how courts are taking a closer look at where the responsibility actually falls. There’s an intriguing discussion on the available options when a judge must consider multiple class actions on a single issue, along with all the usual features that make Proctor the must-read magazine for the Queensland legal profession.
Proctor is now available to be read on your smart-phone or tablet, with iOS and Android apps now available for Queensland Law Society members. Android and Apple users can now download the app from their respective online stores below.
