Briefing Counsel was event two in a four part series co-hosted by Queensland Young Lawyers (QYL) and Level Twenty Seven Chambers which aimed to provide informative and practical sessions on skills barristers and solicitors are often expected to know but not always formally taught. While sessions are typically aimed at lawyers of 3-5 years PQE, those completing their legal training and with additional PQE are also welcome.
Briefing Counsel saw barristers Mei Ying-Barnes and Hannah Lilley, who both practise from Level Twenty Seven Chambers and were previously solicitors in law firms, provide advice to help solicitors streamline the dispute resolution process by ensuring each lawyer in a team knows what is required of them and avoiding work duplications.
