      The decision of the Queensland Court of Appeal in King v King demonstrates that in proceedings in Queensland Courts legal practitioners acting pro bono should still consider at the outset whether it is desired to provide for recovery of costs which might be recovered from another party.

      Impact and interest:

      Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

      These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

      Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
