OverviewEthics and Legal Professionalism in Australia introduces students to the ethics and professional responsibilities that they will encounter in practice. It outlines the concepts, rules and conflicts relating to legal ethics in addition to exploring the ambiguous ethical aspects associated with being a lawyer.
