Difference between the ASCR 2012 and Solicitors Rule 2007

On 1 June 2012, the Legal Profession (Solicitors) Rule 2007 (“Solicitors Rule 2007”) was replaced by the Australian Solicitors Conduct Rules 2012 (“ASCR”). The ASCR maintains much of the language and substance of the Solicitors Rule 2007.

A step in understanding the new Rules is to compare them to the former Rules. For details on the difference between the ASCR rule and Solicitor Rule 2007, please download the comparison table.
