Ethics on Friday: reducing your risk profile with ethical practice

Friday 19th February, 2016 1:00 pm – Friday 19th February, 2016 2:00 pm
Law Society of Western Australia
Level 5, 160 St Georges Terrace PERTH

The management of risk and ethical practice is very closely linked.

As a self-regulated profession it is in our interest to keep the number of complaints and claims against practitioners to a minimum.

Hear from the Legal Profession Complaints Committee and Law Mutual (WA) about each of their philosophies and purposes and how their work often overlaps. Gael Roberts and John Rogers will discuss real life case examples where the Legal Profession Complaints Committee and Law Mutual (WA) have had joint dealings with practitioners, how better risk management can reduce the chance of a claim/complaint and the best approach to take when a claim/complaint is made. Delegates will get an opportunity to ask questions and explore avenues for assistance when issues of risk and ethical practice arise.
