Oration, launched in December 2015, aims to provide bespoke legal seminars, conferences and training to professionals in both private practice and in the industry.

Our objective is to work closely with our clients to design and implement a quality and cost effective program specifically addressing their needs, and also ensuring that any continuing professional development requirements are satisfied.

Oration is driven by the experience, dedication and commitment of Dr Elisabeth Peden and Anthony Lo Surdo SC each of whom have been actively engaged in legal education for decades (in conjunction with legal practice), and are highly sought after speakers both nationally and internationally. They also have access to other experienced and engaging legal speakers/educators for the provision of seminars on a range of legal subjects.

We have been retained by large international and national law firms, medium and small firms around Australia, in-house counsel and managers/non-lawyers in industry.

Seminars can be scheduled according to need:

  • to small groups and run as an interactive, practical workshop
  • as graduate training
  • to larger seminar groups
  • as a breakfast or lunch or after work session
  • as a whole day “refresher” or update
  • to different offices around the country.
