AGS x ANU Seminar
High court

This seminar will discuss how the ‘implied undertaking’ operates in all court proceedings to protect the integrity of the courts’ processes. This poorly understood common law principle has caught many people, including experienced lawyers, unawares. It is a ‘must know’ for early career litigation lawyers. Mr Begbie will discuss when it applies, how it works and how it can be safely navigated.

AGSxANU Seminar Series with Tim Begbie

This seminar is the third instalment in our four-part event series co-hosted by the Australian Government Solicitor (AGS) and ANU College of Law.

The ANU College of Law has partnered with Tim Begbie KC, Chief Counsel Dispute Resolution at AGS, to deliver a four-part seminar series covering public law topics and cases that are not otherwise addressed in the curriculum.

Mr Begbie will speak about cases he has appeared in to give students and staff a window into the actual case and courtroom dynamics, not merely a lecture on legal principles. These seminars are designed to instigate discussion and questions from students and staff.

This seminar series will look at fundamental public law principles that operate to protect the integrity and functioning of the central actors in the public law world. 

Speaker: Tim Begbie KC

Tim Begbie KC is the professional leader of the AGS dispute resolution practice, where he appears in significant and complex public law cases for the Government. He appears as lead counsel at trial and appellate levels and has appeared with Solicitors-General in numerous significant cases.
