26 March 2020 – Online:
Duration:  approx. 1 hour

 ANNOUNCING ONE HOUR LUNCHTIME WEBINARS
You've spoken and we've listened. From 1/8/19 we've structured most of our webinars to run for one hour - the ideal length for staff training sessions. And, for most of you the webinars will be held at lunchtime - the ideal time for attending live webinars.
 ABOUT THE WEBINAR
With the ubiquitous use of smartphones and other technology, it seems everything can be captured on camera these days. Clients will often present you with recordings of their former spouse or children which they claim will help their case. But, what are the limits with using this type of evidence in family law proceedings? This session provides the answers, including:

  • When is a recording lawful or unlawful? A look at Commonwealth and State-based surveillance laws

  • Possible criminal sanctions that may apply

  • The Court’s discretion under s.138 of the Evidence Act to include improperly or illegally obtained evidence

  • What factors does the Court look at when deciding whether or not secret recordings will form part of the evidence?

  • Scrutiny and weight of evidence once admitted

  • How can the recordings potentially backfire on the person making them – understanding the risks

  • Matters involving family violence – a look at Janssen & Janssen [2016] FamCA 345

  • Case update
