Ethics: Discussion of cases - recorded webinar

1 CPD Unit   Recorded webinar  
Ethics & professional responsibility

The Law Society's Senior Ethics Solicitor Linden Barnes discusses some of her favourite ethics cases.

Cases covered include:

  • Legal Services Commissioner v Hurley [2009] NSWADT 125
  • McClure v Thompson 323 F3d 1233
  • McKaskell v Benseman [1989] 3 NZLR 75
  • Mitchell v Burrell [2008] NSWSC 772

Practitioners should inform themselves of Rule 6.1 of the Legal Profession Uniform Continuing Professional Development (Solicitors) Rules 2015 which sets out the requirements for the four (4) mandatory CPD areas for NSW legal
practitioners – (a) ethics and professional responsibility; (b) practice management and business skills; (c) professional skills; and (d) substantive law. It is the responsibility of each legal practitioner to self-assess as to whether a
particular educational activity extends their knowledge and skills in areas that are relevant to their practice needs or professional development. If so, then the practitioner may claim one (1) "unit” for each hour of attendance, refreshment breaks not included.

If you self-assess that this particular educational activity extends your knowledge and skills, this program may allow you to claim one (1) of the mandatory areas: ethics and professional responsibility.
