2019 Queensland Law Society President Bill Potts returns to his role with priorities and passions that include promoting both the value of solicitors in Queensland and the Society itself as a leading legal professional body in Australia. In the February edition of Proctor, Bill explains his plans for the year and how he aims to achieve them. This edition also looks at R v Leach, the next instalment in a series of cases that considers the implications of coercive powers and compulsory examinations in the criminal justice system, and takes a close look Queensland’s Human Rights Bill. This month’s Legal Forecast column looks at the decentralised autonomous organisation (DAO), which is disrupting 400 years of corporate structure, while the early career lawyers section suggests that residential and commercial builders could consider contractual measures to help them resist potential negligence claims. There’s all this and much more in the February Proctor, available now.
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.
