Our first member event of the year was a joint presentation with QL joining with the Australian Legal Practice Management Association (ALPMA) in organising it
This was the first occasion at which both ALPMA www.alpma.com.au and QL worked together, was well attended and raised a great deal of interested discussion.
The presenters were Dr Gillian McAllister with Assoc. Prof. John Gray, UWS School of Management and Dr Peter Ellender, CEO Carter Newell.
Dr Gillian McAllister and Professor Gray presented the preliminary results of their research into Incorporated Legal Practices and Dr Peter Ellender outlined his views on the long term impact that Incorporation may have on legal practices. Dr Ellender is also a member of the QL Board.
