Very proud.
My daughter booked the UN delegation to this conference.
The Australasian Institute of Judicial Administration and Monash University Faculty of Law are pleased to present the conference "Non - Adversarial Justice: Implications for the Legal System and Society"

The emergence of non- adversarial justice in common law systems is the arguably the most significant and wide - ranging development in legal systems internationally in the past thirty years. Determinative justice models are changing methods as common law lawyers and civil code lawyers compare notes. There is a desire to make lawyer controlled adversary processes more user friendly.

The conference seeks to explore the theory and practical application of these approaches by courts, the legal profession and their implications for the role of law and government in society and legal education and the relationship between these approaches in theory and practice.

@dadpad,
Yowch! I hope everything turns out OK, although I suspect he's going to be feeling poorly for a while.

How'd that happen, anyway?

@DrewDad,
Innattention on cold dark rainy night.
Probably driving too fast for the conditions.
Showing off to the girls in the car.
or
All of the above.

He has a probationary licence which means no passengers after dark. So he will probably lose his licence, which he has had for all of 1 month. He's had the car for less than a fortnight.

Stupid stupid stupid stupid!

@sozobe,
He's 19 and had a male friend and 2 15 year old girls in the car with him. driving to maccas (about 1 hours drive).
He wouldnt get out of bed this morning and didnt go to TAFE (similar I think to community college?) today even though its only one day a week.

Hes lost the plot and will pay the price.

No more chances. No more excuses. No more forgiving and forgetting.

@dadpad,
My sympathies to you and mumpad. I know how it feels. At least SonofEva didn't hurt himself.

He'd had his license for about one month when he got a speeding ticket for going 74 in a 45 mph zone. He and a buddy (who had also only had his license for a short period of time) thought they were alone on a country road outside of town and started racing. Unfortunately for them, the sheriff was watching. Both will have to wait until they are 18 to get an unrestricted license now, and both had to pay their own tickets. SonofEva's was $174.

No, we did not pay his ticket. And yes, we think it's probably a good idea that he will have to wait an extra year and a half to be able to carry more than one passenger and not have a curfew. To his credit, he didn't get angry at us. He knew he was the one who screwed up, and he'd have to pay the price.

I am biting my fingers just reading this. So far, Jane is only 15 and has told me
that she'll wait until 18 to have her license as she would be afraid to drive at 16.
I sure hope this sentiment lasts until she's 18 years old.

Good luck for the mum/dadpad young man, he'll need it. You know already
what the ticket will cost?

@Eva,
Well... we dont know. I assume he spent the night at the base hospital waiting to be seen.
Once again he has created a problem and expects someone else to fix it.
We are both fed up with him.
Its his problem not ours.

@dadpad,
So, let him pay the consequences this time if it won't result in permanent damage. It'll do him good.

(I know, easy for me to say...)

Seriously, I have a younger brother who was a major screw-up when he was young, and somebody always helped him out. He was in his 40s before he could live independently.
