Dean Evans, a partner in Gold Coast law firm, Evans & Company Family Lawyers, addressed family law students at Bond University on Saturday, 8th November. Dean was invited to present to the students by family law lecturer and University Clinical Dean, Kathy Atkins.
As a family law specialist and “early years” Bond University student, Dean was delighted to accept the invitation as part of the firm’s ongoing relationship with Bond University and its family law classes, which has also included taking on students completing their Practical Legal Training (PLT), work experience placements and the placement of students enrolled in the family law in practice subjects, where students work at the firm a day of each week – where they study actual cases and see the theory of family law, in action.
Having established the firm Evans & Company Family Lawyers in 1997, Dean has remained committed to supporting young lawyers, interested in family law, to start their professional careers.
This year, Dean presented the lecture to the family law students with firm lawyer, Luke Tonge. Luke is also a former student at Bond University.
The presentation was focused on preparation of property and parenting cases from first interview to the stages of mediation and Court trials. Dean and Luke also discussed the realities of being a lawyer specialising in family law and the practicalities of looking after clients at one of the most difficult times of their lives. The discussion focussed on what clients need from a lawyer and how a lawyer manages client expectations. Also discussed were the challenges of running a modern legal practice and the need for lawyers to have outside interests to achieve a balance and resilience in terms of the stress involved in practicing family law.
