From the Editor
Welcome to the 85th Edition of Hearsay!
This Edition marks a transformation of Hearsay from its previous electronic platform to a more “user-friendly”, workable, transportable and searchable electronic platform. As part of the that technological innovation, the launch of this Edition is accompanied by the shift of most of the previous editions of Hearsay (from the 15th Edition to the 84th Edition) onto the new electronic platform.
This Edition contains informative articles in relation to Insolvency Law and Succession Law.
The case reports in this Edition consider two recent cases from the Supreme Court of Queensland and the High Court of Australia, respectively, concerning the use of extrinsic evidence and the implication of terms in commercial contracts and the ability of lawyers (including barristers) to recover costs when appearing as litigants in person.
On a lighter note, this Edition also contains reports on the 10th Tri-State Football Tournament and the 2019 Bench and Bar Golf Day.
My thanks go to the other members of the Editorial Committee, especially to Amy Low (Sub-Editor for this Edition), and to the staff of the Bar Association, for all their hard work in compiling this Edition and in putting Hearsay onto the new electronic platform.
