Although some of their writers have written commentaries on specific legal codes, in countries outside the developed world, very little attention has been given to legal writing, which has focused specifically on the ethics of the legal profession. This book makes a special contribution in that regard providing, as it does, a comparative study of prevailing efforts to enhance ethical standards in a profession obviously in crisis and under much public scrutiny.

The countries, which have been examined include the UK, the USA, Canada, and some countries in the Pacific, South East Asia and the Caribbean as well as South Africa. Valuable guidance and learning are provided on such topical issues as wasted costs orders, conflicts of interests, legal and judicial codes, confidentiality, privilege and the ethics of the criminal process where the jury system comes in for critical study.
