Ethical Legal Practice and Professional Conduct is designed to develop an understanding of the core principles and issues specific to ethical legal practice in the modern world, to and equip readers with a mindset to conduct their professional behaviour in an ethical way.
The first section of the book provides a context for ethical thinking and behaviour. It covers the foundation stones of legal ethics theory upon which ethical legal practice can be built. The remainder of the book places that ethical framework into the legal professional context.
Written expressly for students in all Australian jurisdictions, the book presents concepts succinctly and accessibly, allowing readers to grasp the essence, both theoretical and practical, of developing an ethical professional mindset. In addition to explanatory commentary, it includes plentiful additional resources to provide clarity and guidance. These include exercises, discussion questions, extensive reading lists and appendices of relevant information.
