Legal Profession Act & Ethics Committee

The Legal Profession Act & Ethics Committee meets to address a wide range of issues relating to the application of the Legal Profession Act, legal practice, legal ethics, and professional standards. This includes providing guidance to the Council on ethical issues which impact (or may foreseeably impact) on Society members and their employees through new or proposed new legislation, as well as other ethical issues as they arise.

The committee supports Society members with ethical dilemmas, and advises the Council on appropriate amendments to legislation, regulations and conduct rules which regulate the conduct of Society members and their employees. The committee also educates Society members on current or emerging legal ethical issues through CPD, articles, and guidelines.
