It’s Rough & Ready In The Northern Territory .. Lawyer Admitted Even She Has Had Two Assault Charges !

Lawyers Wekly Australia…

The Northern Territory Law Society has failed to prevent a new lawyer from being admitted after she disclosed Centrelink overpayments and two assault charges.

The Legal Profession Admission Board referred a new NT lawyer to the Supreme Court after she disclosed Centrelink overpayments totalling $10,000 and two assault charges in 2007 and 2017 across four separate affidavits.

The board considered that she had not been “fully candid” in her initial affidavit relating to the criminal charges and, more specifically, it was concerned that her explanation of one of the overpayments lacked credibility and the explanation of a second overpayment was inconsistent with Centrelink records.
