Session 17.2: The nasty implications of ‘off the cuff advice’

Speaker: Michael Bearman, CTA, Victorian Bar

There are many reasons for advice, usually free, being given "off the cuff". This session will explore the implications and will consider: 

  • The scope of "off the cuff advice"
  • How, when and why "off the cuff advice" is given
  • "Off the cuff advice" by phone or email
  • The importance of the client receiving the advice
  • Does your PI policy cover "off the cuff advice"?
  • Might the "off the cuff advice" be legal advice; and
  • What will the Statement of Claim look like?
