The Client Advice is a research project of 2,000 words that allows you to critically examine a limited aspect of civil procedure of current relevance. As it is a research project, the subject learning material will not constitute all of the material needed to complete the task. You are required to research beyond the course material.
The Client Advice Instructions and Facts
In practice, a client advice involves many steps and not all of them conclude with a written
letter of advice. Each component of this process constitutes the client advice because it
puts the lawyer in the best position possible to advise the client effectively.
Questions 1 to 5, inclusive, must be answered as they collectively constitute the Client
Advice assessment. Allocate your word count in proportion to the marks for each
question. Remember, marks are awarded for not just stating facts but for developing
arguments or applying the legal principles and rules when answering the questions. The
Uniform Civil Procedure Rules 1999 (Qld) (“UCPR”) applies to the Client Advice questions
but your answers are not restricted solely to this legislation. When answering the
questions, be sure to provide all relevant legislation, cases and rules of court.
