The Solicitors Regulation Authority has made ethical practice a cornerstone of its regulatory and competence training regime.

Coupled with the risks of adverse publicity and the perils of social media use, it is clear that it has never been more critical that practising solicitors, and those training to join the profession, understand how they should think and act ethically - in both their professional and personal lives.

This unique book and online course package* will enlighten readers on how to put ethics at the heart of their practice. It is not a strict law book. Instead, using a wealth of real world cases examples, hypothetical scenarios and illustrations, it grounds the SRA requirements firmly within the tricky situations legal practitioners encounter every day. In doing so it not only helps the reader minimise the risks of an investigation (or worse) but also become a more confident practitioner when faced with potential ethical traps.

Written in a straightforward approachable style, and covering the evolving use of social media and ADR, How to be an Ethical Solicitor is an essential resource for every solicitor and law firm library.
