Auscript has affirmed its commitment to the Queensland legal profession, by sponsoring today’s Queensland Law Society Criminal Law Conference in Brisbane.

Auscript is providing support to the event and has made its team available to the lawyers and barristers in attendance, to answer questions relating to the transcript production and ordering processes.

Auscript General Manager Kate Gaske said the company was backing the conference as part of its commitment to being a genuine partner to the legal fraternity in the state.

“The transcripts produced by Auscript for Queensland courts are an integral part of the justice system,” Ms Gaske said.

“So we, at Auscript, see ourselves as a partner supporting legal practitioners and other essential parts of the court system to help deliver justice.

“It’s in the best interests of all parties that the courts operate as well as they possibly can. By working with legal professionals to understand their needs and help them understand the system, we aim to improve the experience for everyone and make the delivery of justice easier and more efficient.”

More than 100 legal professionals are expected to attend the conference, which is designed to deliver practical and relevant professional development specifically for criminal lawyers.

The conference is examining recent cases and legislative updates, recent developments in the Court of Appeal, DNA and forensics, cross-examination of child witnesses, and jury selection.

QLS President Bill Potts welcomed Auscript’s support of the conference, saying the company was showing its commitment to supporting the Queensland legal fraternity at all levels.

“Over many years, Auscript has shown a willingness to work with solicitors and barristers to make the process of ordering transcripts as quick and easy as possible.

“By adopting a highly visible presence at our conference, Auscript is showing it is also willing to listen to feedback from the profession and to accept responsibility for the professional development of practitioners in relation to accessing and using transcripts.”
