LSSA representatives at the Commonwealth Law Conference in Melbourne, Australia – David Bekker and Jan van Rensburg – held an informal meeting with the immediate Past President of the Law Society of Hong Kong, Stephen Hung, where issues of mutual interest and concern to the profession were discussed.

Both Mr Bekker and Mr Van Rensburg participated as speakers at the conference: Mr Bekker, who is chairperson of the LSSA’s Financial Intelligence Centre Act Committee – spoke in the session on money laundering; and Mr Van Rensburg was a panellist in the session on ‘the ethics of litigating civil cases in the media’.
