Disease Aware Issue 5
Welcome to another edition of Keoghs’ regular Disease AWARE magazine.
This edition comes at a time of continued uncertainty and the ‘bedding in’ of the new Jackson reforms.
No doubt, if Mitchell had been a government policy, the opposition bench would now all be waving white flags and screaming U-turn! The legal world being far more sedate and sombre however, the courts and litigators are instead encouraged to take a more nuanced approach to litigation.
There is a very distinct Jackson theme running through this month’s Disease AWARE; we look at where future litigation is headed and how we can embrace this brave new world.
I hope you enjoy reading this edition. Once again, I must express my thanks to all the contributors and the editorial team, whose enthusiasm remains undiminished as we approach the second anniversary of the publication.
