ADELAIDE EVENT | ‘Beat the Clock’ 2023 – Practical legal ethics | Mmmm – I think I may have an ethics issue here!


Event date: 22 February 2023

Time: 4:25 pm - 5:25 pm

Timezone: UTC +10:30 ACDT

CPD points: Practical legal ethics (CPD: 1 Point)


All lawyers will be faced with ethical issues from time to time during their careers. In this session we’ll consider a few which commonly arise in practice and address the question ‘What should I do?’.

For example:

  • I’ve received a document or information that obviously wasn’t intended for me.
  • I’ve accidently sent a document or information to someone who it shouldn’t have gone to.
  • I’ve realised that I’ve provided inaccurate information about my client/employer to an opponent/court/regulator
  • I’m being invited to publicly comment on a matter involving my client/employer
  • I’m being asked to change/redact/withdraw my advice.
  • I’ve received a draft of an expert’s report, and I think it should be changed.
  • When can I deal directly with someone that’s represented by another lawyer?

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