Understanding ethical obligations and recognising ethical dilemmas will be the subject of a paper presented by Paula Wilkinson and Adam Somerville-Browne.

Ethical standards of conduct represent an important professional obligation which we each have as lawyers.  The session will focus upon the duties owed by family lawyers to the Court and the relevant Professional Conduct Rules.  We will address some ethical dilemmas in fact scenarios, making reference to case law along the way.  The session is interactive, so bring your phones!

Light lunch will be provided.
