Bar Team to Return to Lecture in PNG Print E-mail

PNG_intro.jpgIn September 2019 the Bar Association of Queensland will send another volunteer delegation to teach at the Legal Training Institute of Papua New Guinea in Port Moresby. The team will teach at the 7th Commercial Litigation Workshop, as part of the professional legal training course for law graduates and future lawyers of Papua New Guinea.

The five day Workshop has been conducted each year since 2013. This year, the workshop will be conducted between 2 September and 6 September 2019, with classes and exercises in commercial litigation over the first four days. The fifth day is devoted to criminal law and litigation.

The team has always been well received at the Legal Training Institute of PNG and the Association is grateful for this opportunity to share experiences in the law with the future legal practitioners of Papua New Guinea.

The team this year will be led by Andrew Crowe QC, and will be accompanied by three judges, including Justice Logan of the Federal Court of Australia, who has joined the delegation from the Queensland Bar each year. The full Queensland team is:

  • Justice John Logan RFD

  • Mal Varitimos QC
  • Karen Carmody
