Description

DIRECT CROSS-EXAMINATION IN FAMILY LAW MATTERS: TANIA WENN, BARRISTER AND SOLICITOR

Some perpetrators of family violence have used cross-examination of their former partners as a method of continuing control. Most often the perpetrators are male and the women in this context suffer further trauma, not only because of the court process and the uncertain nature of the outcomes but by having to repeat their stories, relive the abuse suffered by themselves and/or their children while being cross examined directly by the perpetrator.

This seminar will discuss the legislative changes to the Family Law Amendment (Family Violence and Cross-examination of Parties) Bill 2018 and its overall purpose, especially in terms of preventing personal cross-examination and ensuring the protection of victims of family violence.

Ms Wenn will discuss the background to these changes, the impact the changes will have on all parties as well as some of the challenges and difficulties in this highly complex and emotional setting.

Tania Wenn is a Barrister and Solicitor, and Principal of Wenn Law Barristers and Solicitors. Tania commenced her law degree as a mature age student and was the first person from the inaugural Law degree from Edith Cowan University to be admitted as a certified Practicing Lawyer by the Supreme Court. She is a passionate advocate in the Family Court system.

Presentation will commence at approximately 6.15pm.
