The afternoon session includes an ethics workshop, tea break and a lecture/discussion, and counts for 2 QS points. Refreshments will be provided.
Ethics Workshop details:
Ethics – in practical terms, compliance with requirements of BSB Handbook and especially the Code of Conduct – at heart of what we do as professionals – not some technical or academic add on.
You WILL come across ethical problems – the more junior you are the more often they will arise with no warning at the last minute – stranded in some far away court.
You MUST be able to identify a problem and think it through and ask for advice. There may not be a right answer but it is better to have thought it through and done something than not to have noticed it.
You WILL find different duties often pull in different directions and what you have to do may be counter-intuitive.
Details of the preparation required in advance of this session will be made available to ticket holders in due course, and at least one week before the session. You will be able to download it using the link at the top of this page. Please ensure that you prepare in good time.
Students need to attend the whole afternoon in order to claim the Qualifying Session points.
