Lawyers in Australia is a wide-ranging and detailed examination of the legal profession and its ethical framework. It contextualises the role, responsibilities and ethics of lawyers in contemporary Australian society and discusses recent trends and issues. It has proved to be a popular text for the teaching of Legal Ethics courses since the first edition in 2007.

This third edition incorporates the latest developments in both law and contextual issues, and provides detailed coverage of the new Legal Profession Uniform Law and associated Rules. It also updates statistical information relating to lawyers and the make-up of the legal profession in Australia, and references recent studies and commentary in relation to lawyers and the legal profession.

Revised discussion and research questions relating to each chapter continue to make it a useful teaching resource. Its detailed examination of the legal profession, its ethical framework, access to justice and consideration of future issues confronting the legal profession, all make it of interest and relevance to academic, student and practitioner.
