2019 PRE CONFERENCE DINNER

Guest speaker: Mr Sean Fewster

Sean Fewster is the bestselling author of the true crime bestseller “City of Evil”, which was adapted as a four-part documentary series screening on the Nine Network and Foxtel’s Crime + Investigation Australia. He is also the multi award-winning chief court reporter for The Advertiser newspaper in Adelaide, South Australia. For almost two decades, he has covered cases ranging from tax-evading ninja clans and doomsday cults to rapists and serial killers.

Sean provides true crime analysis every week on Adelaide’ top talkback radio station, FiveAA, and commentates events for World Series Wrestling around Australia and Riot City Wrestling in Adelaide. He is also very, very geeky and can be found at many of the nation’s comic book and pop culture conventions throughout the year.
Sean will be presenting an informative and humorous evening.

The Pre Conference dinner is an attractive package including two courses of top quality pub food and a selection of beer and fine wine. Representatives of the South Australian Legal community will also be in attendance.
