The service considers the elements of change that lawyers need to embrace to keep pace with their changing markets. In addition it offers a comparative consideration of costs law in Australia and the principles and practices of costs law applied in the Supreme Courts of the States and Territories, the Federal, Family and High Courts of Australia and England. Quick on Costs is available on the new Westlaw, Westlaw AU, ProView and in Print.
