Registration is open for the ALA’s Victoria Conference, the state’s longest-running CPD event for plaintiff lawyers.
This year, in addition to our in-person Conference, the ALA is offering an online-only option. The Conference will be streamed live, and attendees will have the ability to connect with fellow delegates and Conference sponsors via the streaming platform.
Over two days, expert presenters will discuss and analyse current issues in personal injury law, providing you with information that will contribute to your professional development. Up to 8 CPD points can be claimed.
The Conference will be divided into two concurrent streams, with sessions covering common law, gender equality, the assessment of damages, wellbeing in the workforce, and the all-important TAC, workers' compensation and case review panels.
Don’t miss this opportunity to enjoy the benefits of an ALA conference without leaving your home or office!
