NSW Seminar on Data Retention Bill – 31 March 2015 – Parliament House

How does the Data Retention Bill (and existing data surveillance) impact your legal practice?

In its current form, the proposed Data Retention Bill would significantly infringe Australians’ rights to privacy and chill their freedom of speech and freedom of assembly. All Australians are effectively treated as suspects.

If lawyers are to keep client communications confidential – which they have an ethical obligation to do so that the relationship of trust with a client is protected – they will have to take active steps to achieve this.

Join us for a discussion on how the proposed Data Retention Bill may impact your legal practice.

David Shoebridge MLC will introduce this seminar, held in conversation with:

  • Dr Tamsin Clarke, ALHR National Committee member
  • Jon Lawrence, Electronic Frontiers Australia
  • Michael Bradley, Marque Lawyers

Attendance may count for CLE points for ‘ethics and professional responsibility’ or ‘practice management and business skills’ (Rule 57).


When: 12.45pm – 2pm, 31 March 2015

Venue: Waratah Room, NSW Parliament House, Macquarie Street, Sydney
