Recent news

Practicing the law is about so much more than glamour and prestige. It’s about people, their livelihoods and their liberty, and the role that we play in preserving that.
Banking sector
Since the GFC there have been more than 17 Inquiries and Reviews into the AFS, with an emphasis on poor bank behaviour and bank culture. The volume of recommendations made by the various Inquiries and Reviews is astonishing when compared to those recommendations that have actually been implemented. Disappointment has been rife within the community because the change that was expected to follow the Inquiries and Reviews was not delivered. A wide range of voices across the community have called for government intervention, and the government has hit back with several measures announced as part of the 2017 Federal Budget.

Confidence is a trait that lawyers need to possess. Without it, being successful will be difficult. It can be difficult to develop confidence, and it can be tricky to maintain it.

To practice as a lawyer in Australia you need to complete your Graduate Diploma of Legal Practice (GDLP) - also referred to as Practical Legal Training, or PLT - before you can apply to be admitted as a legal practitioner. (When you see PLT or GDLP, note that these terms are used interchangeably and refer to the same course).

Please note, only a small selection of recent publications and activities are listed below.

Research biography

Tracey’s primary research interest is in the field of banking and finance law. She is writing a series of articles (with the view to potentially collating into a monograph) which explore the impact of the changing global economic landscape on different aspects of the Australian Financial System (AFS). Significantly, she will examine the issue of social costs of the inadequacies of regulation within the AFS, particularly, the banking sector.

Coming to ANU from a background in private practice, Tracey also incorporates into her research work that addresses the ongoing ethical and moral obligations on senior practitioners in relation to newly admitted and junior practitioners. She intends to develop further the practical issue that a practitioner’s ethics obligations extend much further than that of simply complying with the professional conduct rules and regulations.
