Lawyers are expected to behave in an ethical and professional manner at all times, and the SRA Handbook places extra emphasis on ethics in a lawyer’s conduct and in client care. It is important that all in-house lawyers – whether in senior positions as heads of legal or as newly qualified members of legal teams – understand the behaviours expected of them.

In-house Ethics in Practice is a practical, easy-to-read guide on the ethical behaviour that is expected of in-house lawyers. It describes those behaviours that are expected when you work in a legal environment, and it provides guidance on some of the most challenging, but common, issues which arise in in-house practice.

Key features of this book include:

  • Explanatory analysis of conduct requirements
  • FAQs on key ethical issues
  • Examples from the Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal and case law
  • Examples from the author's own experience working in the Law Society/SRA ethics department
  • Top tips are provided on the conduct issues discussed in each chapter
