Lawyers’ Professional Responsibility fifth edition has been updated throughout. It remains a detailed yet accessible treatment of lawyers’ professional and ethical responsibilities, and is suitable for students and practitioners alike.

This edition includes commentary on the impending attempts to procure uniformity in statutory regulation of lawyers across Australia. Relevant provisions in the proposed Legal Profession National Law are cited, and the avenues whereby the national model is proposed to be achieved are identified and explained.

This edition contains references to the most recent national model professional rules for barristers (which have already seen implementation in four jurisdictions) and to the Australian Solicitors' Conduct Rules. Although the latter currently apply only in South Australia and Queensland, they are slated for introduction elsewhere in due course.

Changes to professional rules in other jurisdictions are noted, including the new United Kingdom rules, for comparative purposes. As always, the book is comprehensive, with detailed footnoting of relevant provisions and rules in each Australian jurisdiction, and evincing a truly comparative perspective with other common law countries.
