Loops and twists

More changes to the Fair Work Act

How will Australia's workplace reforms impact your organisation and shift the employer/employee dynamic?

This session will review the most significant changes to the Fair Work Act, including the "right to disconnect", unfair contract provisions, and implications for casual/contractor engagement.

CPD category: Substantive law

Speakers: Mark Sullivan and Sara Wescott

"I don't do feelings, I'm a lawyer"

Legal education, professional rules and cultural norms encourage lawyers to see emotions as largely irrelevant and inconsistent with professionalism. At the same time, research in psychology (including the work of a couple of Nobel laureates) describes a critical role for emotions in both the technical and relational aspects of in-house legal practice.

Join Anthony Kearns to explore the origins and implications of our relationship with emotions and the value of developing a more emotionally agile practice.

CPD category: Professional skills

Speaker: Anthony Kearns

You will also hear from leaders Genevieve Collins and Daniel Proietto as they outline practical steps Lander & Rogers has implemented to become the first national Australian law firm with gender equality among its partnership.
