Everything You Need to Know About Class Actions in Australia
Lawyers Weekly Live Panel Webcast
Length: 60 Minutes
It’s been over 25 years since class actions were introduced in Australia. With the current political environment, it is a good time to look at the class action market, the concepts of access to justice and the future of class actions in Australia.
This panel webinar hosted by Lawyers Weekly live dives into the nature and status of class action matters in Australia, the emergence of domestic and international litigation funders, the sociopolitical, technological and professional issues currently giving rise to such class actions across the country, and – more broadly – why class actions are such an integral part of our cultural and legal environments. Watch FTI Consulting's Dawna Wright give her expert perspective on the challenges of assessing damages in shareholder class actions.
