More Information: There are great opportunities to build on relationships between community legal centres and researchers, to ensure meaningful access to justice across Australia.

Each year, Australia's community legal centres provide legal help to over 200,000 vulnerable people, across family, criminal and civil law.

Our data collection tool collects 50+ different types of information about each client, and our legal work covers a large number of legal areas. This is a rich and underused resource for researchers interested in how real people experience the law, its structures and processes.

This inaugural research partnerships roundtable co-hosted by NACLC and QAILS will showcase successful research collaborations between community legal centres and research organisations, discuss possible funding sources and opportunities, discuss the existing quality of community legal centre research projects, and ignite conversations about possible research opportunities.

The Research Partnerships Roundtable will bring together community legal centres with researchers and academics, to identify opportunities for collaboration and partnership in research projects.

The keynote presentation will be delivered by Professor Rosalind Croucher AM, President, Australian Law Reform Commission.

A highlight of the event will be the networking lunch, held at the conclusion of the formal program. The lunch provides attendees with a fantastic opportunity to network with presenters, panellists and each other.

The Research Partnerships Roundtable is taking place 9.00am to 1.00pm on Wednesday 1 June 2016 at the offices of Corrs Chambers Westgarth, Level 42, 111 Eagle St, Brisbane.

The cost of attending is $30 to $35 and registration includes morning tea and lunch.

MONDAY 11 JULY 2016
Australian Centre of Private Law/Bar Association of Queensland
Topic: "Property or Loss: A Tension in Private Law"
Presenter: Professor Ben McFarlane (University College London)
Venue: Bar Association of Queensland,
Ground Floor, Inns of Court,
107 North Quay
Brisbane
Time: Mon, 11 July : 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Contact: Megan Niebling - CPD Team, ph: 3238 5109 , email: CPD@qldbar.asn.au
More Information: "There is a tension in private law between what might be seen as a property-based approach, which focusses on identifying and vindicating rights, and a loss-based approach, which instead focusses on identifying and compensating losses. A number of recent decisions, for example, are more consistent with the loss-based approach, which in some cases is used to extend liability (by allowing recovery of losses even in the absence of a recognised right), and in others is used to limit liability (by refusing to vindicate a right in a case where no loss has been suffered). In some of those decisions, judges have referred to the need to adopt a "realistic" or "economic" approach, focussing on overall gains or losses, as opposed to a "narrow" or "legalistic" view which looks instead to the parties' initial rights. I will consider the effects of such developments, and the possible ways of reconciling them with more traditional private law rules."
