Overview

e-Trials: A New Shift In Personal Injury Litigation

It is clear that e-trials are a matter of ‘when’, rather than ‘if’, for personal injury practitioners. It is important that we prepare ourselves for the change and this event is the perfect opportunity to learn more about e-trials and demystify the process.

Our panel features Her Honour Judge Tsalamandris of the County Court, who presided over the County Court’s first personal injury e-trial. Formerly a solicitor, Judge Tsalamandris brings a wealth of practical experience to the bench and is uniquely positioned to critique the use of e-trials for personal injury matters.

The Victorian Solicitor for Public Prosecutions, John Cain, will also be on the panel. The Office of Public Prosecutions has been running e-trials, and John has first-hand experience of the benefits, challenges and opportunities that they present. Like personal injury matters, criminal proceedings are heard by juries and involve complex evidentiary issues, so John’s experience is directly relevant to personal injury practitioners.

Our final panellist, Daniel Nguyen, a Lennon’s List barrister and member of the Victorian Bar Council, worked on the 2009 Black Saturday bushfire e-trials proceedings. He also wrote an article published in the ALA Precedent Journal, March/April 2017 Edition, 'The Advent of E-Litigation: The Paperless Trial'.

It is rare that we have such qualified and experienced panellists, making this is an event not to be missed.
