National and regional competition authorities across the world have formed international support and enforcement networks.

Legal professional privilege and disciplinary complaints by non ...
If you are a solicitor and someone other than your client or former client has lodged a disciplinary complaint against you in Victoria, you should not disclose the subject matter of any communications to which legal professional privilege attaches, or might arguably attach, unless you are instructed to do so by your client or former client.

does not apply to communications with in-house lawyers.  [The AG’s opinion proposes that the Court should dismiss the appeal, but is not binding on the Court of Justice. It is the role of the Advocates General to propose to the Court, in complete independence, a legal solution to the cases for which they are responsible; most commentators agree that the Court relies heavily on the AG’s opinions and directions, but the Court will now begin their own deliberations on the matter and deliver their decision at a later date.]  The AG’s opinion is based on her belief that internal communications ... market research, surveys and trends

NBA Elections: The Politics, the Candidates, the Issues
Next Wednesday and Thursday, accredited delegates of the Nigerian Bar Association, as well as observers, will gather at Ibadan to elect the next President of the NBA. The Association elects its President every two years for a single two year period. An informal zoning arrangement means the presidency has been zoned to the North this time. Two years ago, it was zoned to the West, and in an unprecedented move, the region ensured the emergence of a single candidate who ran unopposed, Rotimi Akeredolu, SAN. It removed the rancour, bitterness, rigours and risks of travelling to all 88 branches nationwide to canvass for support and ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Question: Calling the opposition's lawyer as a witness, NYS
I've advanced a NYS Supreme Court lawsuit against me to having an evidentiary hearing for the appt of a Guardian ad Litem scheduled.

What information can be found for this for NYS? Answer by Researcher davidsarokin on Tue 11 Dec 2007 - 10:45 pm UTC:
