Australian Solicitors’ Conduct Rules

Review of the Australian Solicitors’ Conduct Rules – have your say

Public consultation on a proposed Australian Solicitors’ Conduct Rule

The Law Council of Australia invites comments and submissions by 7 December 2020 on a proposal for an Australian Solicitors’ Conduct Rule (Rule 11A – Short-term legal assistance services).

The purpose of the proposed Rule is to clarify how existing ethical principles relating to avoiding conflicts of interest between current clients, or current and former clients, of a solicitor or law practice may be applied when providing short-term legal assistance services.

The Public Consultation Paper can be downloaded here and comments and submissions can be lodged by email at ascr@lawcouncil.asn.au
