SAVE THE DATE!

After a year like no other, 2022 will be a time for Tribunals to reset and be reinvigorated. This is the theme for next year’s COAT National Conference – to be held as a virtual event on 9 and 10 June 2022.

There is an impressive range of national and international speakers lined up.

  • Damien Carrick, presenter of the ABC Law Report, asks a multidisciplinary panel “Would I lie to you?”
  • Professor Tom Tyler, Macklin Fleming Professor of Law and Professor of Psychology at Yale Law School will explore the importance of procedural justice in Tribunal decision making.
  • Dispute Management expert, Franca Petrone will conduct a small group workshop on the skills of reality testing

It is expected that sessions will be held between 9:30am and 1:30pm AEST each day to maximise the opportunity for people from Perth to Auckland to participate. The conference will be recorded and available after the event so that registrants can take full advantage of all concurrent sessions.

So save 9 and 10 June 2022 in your calendar now.
