Date: 6th February 2018
Duration: 1 hour
 ABOUT THE WEBINAR
With the roll-out of the new National Court Framework, the Federal Court is hoping to ensure the quick, efficient and cost-effective resolution of commercial disputes. It’s vital that practitioners understand how to effectively draft the new form of pleadings and other court documents. This session unpacks the essentials:
  • Drafting the new Concise Statement:
    • understanding its purpose - draft to tell the story
    • presenting a narrative that is persuasive
    • drafting strategies to navigate the tension between remaining within the constraints of the Concise Statement and ensuring you present all the information you need
    • avoiding requests for further and better particular through effective drafting
  • How does the new Concise Statement differ to orthodox pleadings?
  • Further and better particulars – drafting with purpose and effect
  • Drafting agreed statement of facts and notices to admit – strategies to help streamline the issues in dispute
