The summer 2011-12 edition of Bar News is in the mail.ï¿½It features theï¿½customary mix ofï¿½interesting stories, such as:ï¿½the art of sentencing offenders; the recent case concerning Andrew Bolt; andï¿½the life and career of Sir Garfield Barwick. It questions whether a duty of care can be said to exist on the modern battlefield andï¿½reports on the unveiling of the portrait of Sir Kenneth Jacobs. And of course it includesï¿½coverage of bar sports, appointments, obituaries andï¿½Bullfry's long walk home after the Bench and Bar Dinner.
This edition of Bar News is accompanied by the second edition of the Bar Associations Guidelines for Barristers on Dealing with Self-Represented Litigants. The additional material might slow down distribution and members are asked to be patient.ï¿½If youï¿½have not received your copy by Tuesday, 13 December at the latest, please contact the publications manager, Chris Winslow.
