Since the last edition of Ethics, Professional Responsibility and the Lawyer was published the Lawyers and Conveyancers Act 2006 has been enacted and Rules of Conduct and Client Care replaced the Rules of Professional Conduct for Barristers and Solicitors in 2008. Consequently there have been huge changes to the field of legal ethics.
This new edition incorporates these changes and the relevant jurisprudence and includes expanded analysis of associated key topics including: lawyer-client relationships and conflicts; client confidences; privacy; and duties of care.
Legal ethics is a compulsory course for all New Zealand law students and an integral part of the lawyers' professional life making Ethics, Professional Responsibility and the Lawyer a must-have text for all current and aspiring lawyers.
