The fourth edition of Lawyers’ Professional Responsibility provides a comprehensive and accessible treatment of lawyers’ professional and ethical responsibilities. It deals with all sources of professional responsibility, including case law, legislation and professional rules, and covers all Australian jurisdictions.

The fourth edition brings the statutory and rule-based framework entirely up to date, addressing the new legal profession legislation enacted in many States and Territories as well as new professional rules that have been implemented. Reference is also made to professional responsibility models in other common law jurisdictions, including the new professional rules in New Zealand and the United Kingdom, and to recent developments in the United States.
