  • Issue Summer 2015 - Farewell Paul Daley OAM
    • Abstract: Melis, Christine
      Many of us have probably had several different jobs before coming to the bar. But for one man, one job and one job alone did the 'job' for a whopping 54 years. Paul Daley retired this year after serving as a barrister's clerk with Eleven Wentworth for 54 years. So I asked Paul what kept him in the same job. The answer was simple, 'I loved coming into work every single day. There was always something different happening.'

  • Issue Summer 2015 - Challenges in the world of a junior barrister:
           Accommodation
    • Abstract: Smith, Nicholas
      Junior barristers face many challenges, with one of the most significant being accommodation. From the beginning of readership and, for many barristers, years afterwards, practice is accompanied by a ticking clock, counting down until the day when they are kicked out of their accomodation, licence or annex and/or be presented with the ultimatum of 'buy in or leave'. While the bar can be a meritocratic profession, life can be made significantly easier if accomodation that is pleasant, close to supportive colleagues, and reasonably priced can be found.

    • Abstract: Barker, Ian
      There has been much talk of late, at least in Northern Territory legal circles, about 'paperless arrests' and the death in custody of Kumanjayi Langdon, a Pintubi man who, on 21 May 2015, fell foul of the law makers by doing practically nothing.

  • Issue Summer 2015 - Construing commercial contracts
    • Abstract: Fishburn, Talitha
      This case involved two separate but related proceedings. Both involved construing terms of a commercial contract. The contract in question was a mining royalty agreement entered into by Wright Prospecting Pty Limited, Hancock Prospecting Pty Limited (together, Hanwright), Hamersley Iron Pty Ltd and Mount Bruce Mining Pty Limited (MBM) and others in 1970. Under the agreement, MBM acquired iron ore mining rights in relation to 'temporary reserves' granted under the 'Mining Act 1904' (WA) (the MBM Area) in exchange for royalties for iron ore won from the area. The obligation to pay royalties extended to 'all persons or corporations deriving title through or under' MBM to the 'MBM Area'.

    • Abstract: Case, Natasha
      In 'Myriad', the appellant sought the revocation of three claims made in the respondent's patent pursuant to s 138 of the 'Patents Act 1990' (Cth) (Patents Act). The appellant argued that these claims were for naturally occurring genetic information and were not patentable inventions. The Federal Court, and a unanimous Full Federal Court, disagreed with this proposition.

  • Issue Summer 2015 - Backwards tracing
    • Abstract: O'Brien, Angus
      'Tracing is the process of identifying a new asset as the substitute for the old.' More particularly, where one asset is exchanged for another, tracing enables a trust beneficiary to treat the value in a substituted asset as representing the value in the original asset by making the substituted asset the subject of his claim. Accordingly, tracing cannot avail a beneficiary where there is no value attributable to the original asset, such as where that value has been dissipated, e.g., by payment into an overdrawn bank account. 'Ex nihilio nihil fit': nothing comes from nothing.

  • Issue Summer 2015 - High Court upholds constitutional validity of
           political donations legislation
    • Abstract: Ellicott, Madeleine
      In 'McCloy', the High Court considered whether certain provisions of the 'Election Funding, Expenditure and Disclosures Act' 1981 (NSW)(EFED Act) that impose a cap on political donations, prohibit property developers from making such donations and restrict indirect campaign contributions impermissibly infringed the implied freedom of political communication.

  • Issue Summer 2015 - Enforceability of lease executed in breach of statute
    • Abstract: Okereke-Fisher, Uche
      The High Court of Australia recently considered the issue of statutory illegality in the matter of 'Gnych v Polish Club Limited' [2015] HCA 23. In this case, the court unanimously allowed an appeal from a decision of the Court of Appeal of the Supreme Court of New South Wales and, in doing so, held that a lease granted in contravention of s 92(1)(d) of the 'Liquor Act 2007' (NSW) (Liquor Act) was not void and unenforceable.

    • Abstract: Eldridge, John
      In 'Cavendish Square Holding BV v Talal El Makdessi; ParkingEye Limited v Beavis' [2015] UKSC 67, the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom engaged in an extensive review of the rule against penalties ('the penalty rule'). In declining to extend the penalty rule beyond provisions which, as a matter of substance, provide for the consequences of a breach of contract, the Supreme Court opted not to follow the approach taken in 'Andrews v Australia and New Zealand Banking Group Limited' (2012) 247 CLR 205 ('Andrews').

  • Issue Summer 2015 - Accusation and adjudication don't mix
    • Abstract: Buckland, Brodie
      In 'Isbester', the High Court considered whether the test for apprehension of bias was fulfilled where one member of a threeperson panel reviewing whether a dog should be destroyed had earlier brought charges in her official capacity concerning that dog. In so doing, the High Court applied the 'Ebner' test to circumstances where the apprehension of bias was said to arise as a result of that panel member occupying two incompatible roles.

      As a response to the Law Council's National Attrition and Reengagement Study Report (NARS), the Equal Opportunity Committee will identify senior practitioners as Advocates for Change. Phillip Boulten SC has been selected as an Advocate for Change in the area of criminal law for defence barristers. Talitha Fishburn spoke to him about his views on female defence barristers and the extent to which equitable briefing impacts them.

  • Issue Summer 2015 - An overview of the Legal Profession Uniform Law
    • Abstract: Robertson, David
      On 1 July 2015, a new regulatory regime for legal practitioners in New South Wales came into operation, with the commencement of the substantive provisions of the 'Legal Profession Uniform Law' (NSW), the 'Legal Profession Uniform Law Application Act 2014' (NSW), and the associated regulations and rules. Although the structure of the new regulatory regime is new, the substance has not greatly changed: the new regulatory regime is evolutionary rather than revolutionary, building upon earlier moves towards a single, uniform regulatory regime for all legal practitioners in Australia.

  • Issue Summer 2015 - Tipping the scales: Equity and diversity at the bar
    • Abstract: Needham, Jane
      On 14 March 1924 Eugene Gabriel Sayegh was called to the bar. His admission was moved before the full bench of the High Court by the attorney general of New South Wales, Sir Thomas Bavin. Sydney's infamous tabloid at that time, 'The Truth', described him as 'the only Syrian barrister in Australia' and followed up with the superfluous observation that 'foreign legal lights are few and far between in this country, so Mr Sayegh's position is rather unique'.

  • Issue Summer 2015 - Lawyers, causes and passion
    • Abstract: French, Robert
      Justice Mathews, my colleague Justice Bell, judges of the Land and Environment Court, members of the New South Wales Parliament, distinguished guests, ladies and gentlemen. Just over five years ago I addressed the 25th anniversary dinner of the Environmental Defender's Office of New South Wales. I was pleasantly surprised to be asked back to address the 30th anniversary dinner. In 2010, I speculated metaphorically about the classification of environmental lawyers as a species in the legal ecology which might be classed as entirely pestiferous, unattractively beneficial like the dung beetle, or perhaps as a truly wonderful new example of creative evolution. The jury, I suppose, is still out on the taxonomy, and like most taxonomical questions in the law and elsewhere, the response depends very much on whom you talk to. I predicted that the species would be durable. Five years later I can say of that prediction, to the extent that it rests upon the continuing existence of the NSW EDO - so far so good. One source of nutrient, namely Commonwealth funding, has been withdrawn but if that leads to adaptation to more diverse sources of sustenance through a greater level of community support and less dependence on government, that may not be such a bad thing. That, I suppose, is what this fundraising dinner is about as well as the justified celebration of a proud 30 year history.

    • Abstract: Odgers, Stephen; Lancaster, Richard
      The High Court handed down its decision in IMM v The Queen [2016] HCA 14 on 14 April 2016. The appellant was seeking to overturn his conviction for indecent dealing and sexual intercourse with a child under the age of 16. At trial the prosecution was permitted, over objection, to adduce both complaint and tendency evidence. The trial judge determined the probative value of this evidence for the purposes of ss 97(1) and 137 of the Evidence Act on the assumption that the jury would accept the evidence and without taking into account factors such as reliability and credibility. The High Court held by majority that this was the correct approach.However the High Court further held that the tendency evidence had been wrongly admitted because it did not have 'significant probative value' within the meaning of s 97(1)(b) of the Evidence Act.

In summary, where the person's legal interests were represented by a party to the prior proceedings, he or she will be treated as a privy in interest with that party if he or she had an opportunity to control the conduct of the previous proceedings, and the potential detriment to him or her from creating such an estoppel was taken into account in the conduct of those proceedings.

She embodied the continuing social and class divisions which seemed to have provoked the Brexit, since she retained the dialectical ability to move seamlessly between a received BBC pronunciation, and broad Scouse.

    • Abstract: French, Robert
      I learned from Maurice Byers a great advocate's perspective on the High Court - 'they're just chaps Bob, just chaps' - or so he told me, as we prepared for the hearing in 'Koowarta v Bjelke-Peterson' in 1982. As a description of the gender of the court it was accurate. I learned from him in 'Fencott v Muller' in 1983 that one line of dismissive humour could do more for a wide view of the corporations power than an hour of earnest argument. In 1986 on my appointment to the Federal Court he sent me a note expressing confidence that I would eventually be appointed to the High Court. Perhaps he was encouraging me to stay on for the long haul and was relying upon the proposition, a little like the one about monkeys typing Shakespeare, that given enough time almost anything has a finite probability of happening. Six years later, in 1993, I barely found the strength, when he appeared before me for the plaintiff in 'Newcrest Mining (WA) Ltd v Commonwealth', on remitter from the High Court in all respects save for the constitutional question, to resist his siren song invitation to have a go at the constitutional question anyway. Our encounters were brief, but each a delight in its own way. I have been invited to present many lectures named after significant legal personalities. None has given me greater pleasure than the invitation to present this the 16th lecture in the series established by the New South Wales Bar Association to honour his memory. There are few public lectures named for advocates. Maurice Byers is properly honoured. He was an important figure in the development of Australian constitutional and public law. He was an unforgettable advocate and as those who had the privilege of working with him know he was a man of integrity, modesty and humour.

In dissent, Kiefel and Gordon JJ found that the challenged distribution was not a valid exercise of the power of advancement, and that because there had not been a change in the beneficial ownership of the shares, there had been no application of the capital of the trust.

    • Abstract: Eldridge, John
      On 27 July 2016, the High Court handed down the latest in a series of significant decisions on the scope and content of the rule against penalties ('the penalty rule'). 'Paciocco v Australia and New Zealand Banking Group Limited' [2016] HCA 28 (Paciocco) involved a challenge to the enforceability of credit card late payment fees charged by the ANZ. The fees were impugned on two independent bases. It was first contended that the fees offended the general law rule against penalties. It was further argued that the charging of the fees contravened the statutory proscription of unconscionable conduct and that the relevant terms of the credit card contracts were unjust and unfair within the meaning of a number of statutory provisions.1 The court (constituted by French CJ, Kiefel, Gageler, Keane and Nettle JJ) rejected both of these contentions by 4:1 (Nettle J dissenting).

    • Abstract: Thew, Penny; Taylor, Ingmar
      The future of a strong and independent bar in New South Wales depends upon the pursuit of excellence so as to retain essential public confidence in it. That requires not only the attraction of the best practitioners drawn from the widest possible pool but, just as importantly, their retention within the profession. To assist to achieve these ends the bar must strive to ensure that all who practise are free from harassment, discrimination, vilification, victimisation and bullying and that appropriate steps are taken whenever a grievance arises in those areas. For these reasons the adoption of the Bar Association's 'Model Best Practice Guidelines (BPGs)' and the adherence to them are fundamental steps which should be taken by chambers. Important protective legal effects arise for those who do so.
