Rule 5 of the UCPR? More like, shot 5 at the Eu-CP-Bar! (That's a bar in Barcelona)
Exam block is nearing a close, coming towards us like the bloated remains of a whale washing up on popular beaches, only to be pushed back out to sea to return next semester, stinking of rot and feasted upon by sharks and people who still seem to live in the Bio Sciences Library over the holidays.
As we wave goodbye to the whale we herald the arrival of July and you know what that means - the mass exodus of Brisbane population aged between 18 - 25 to the sun-lit fields of Europe! Yaaas, spleen!
One hurdle remains (or remained, depending on when you read this): that old nasty LAWS5215 Civil Procedure exam, sitting happily on 8am on the last Friday. Ewwww.
But you know what this bloody exam really is? Aside from something about applications, case management, UCPR, commencement (I'm just reading off the table of contents of a friend's notes) - its another two hours to plan your awesome Europe trip! We know you've booked your flight for straight after the exam like some cool cool kid, so better get planning!
Question 1 - Was this document under legal professional privilege? More like, at what point in my five week adventure will I get professional massage in the heated steamy saunas of Finland under the experienced hands of Hans Korhonen?
Question 2 - In what court should these proceedings start? More like, in what tennis court should I be watching the tennis? Is there tennis in Europe? Another thing to plan out!
Question 3 - List the various principles for amending pleadings laid out in AON v ANU. More like, go to Europe. Yas, R v De Silva.
Europe is going to be amazing, and with two hours plus 10 minutes reading time, you'll have the whole trip ready to go before you can say, 'I really should have printed out the whole UCPR.’
