This seminar will also be streamed as a webinar.
Clients want their lawyers to zealously represent them and usually have plenty of ideas as to how that might “best” be done. But lawyers are required not to be mere mouthpieces of their client and owe higher duties to the Court. That clash can lead to complaints about practitioners acting on their client’s instructions without giving proper consideration to whether it was ethical to do so.
Matt Howard SC examines how acting on your client’s instructions, without the proper exercise of independent judgement, can give rise to disciplinary concerns.
