ADELAIDE: ‘Beat the Clock’ 2024 – Practical Legal Ethics | Ethics – what we can learn from what’s reported by regulators and the media about lawyers who’ve run into problems?


Event Location: Piper Alderman, 70 Franklin Street, Adelaide SA, Australia

Event date: 28 February 2024

Time: 4:25 pm - 5:25 pm

Timezone: UTC +10:30 ACDT

CPD points: Practical Legal Ethics (CPD: 1 Point)


Reports from those who regulate the legal profession, such as the SA Legal Profession Conduct Commissioner Annual Report, provide valuable insight into the types of situations that are most likely to give rise to ethical challenges. What can we learn from them that might help us in avoiding problems of our own? And what can we learn from some of the high-profile matters, reported in the media, in which the conduct of commercial lawyers has come under the spotlight?

This session promises a dynamic exploration of ethics, blending:

  • Statistics
  • High-profile cases, and
  • Actionable takeaways

This session will be relevant for all in-house counsel roles.

This in-person session is open to all organisations, excluding other legal service providers.
