The Australian Solicitors Conduct Rules 2012 in Practice: A Commentary for Australian Legal Practitioners

The Australian Solicitors Conduct Rules 2012 in Practice: A Commentary for Australian Legal Practitioners is an essential reference tool for practising solicitors. The commentary is the most comprehensive guide to the Australian Solicitors Conduct Rules 2012 (ASCR) and aims to assist practitioners by providing guidance and additional information in applying the ASCR.

The rules are annotated with practical suggestions on how to avoid ethical mistakes. The commentary contains questions to pose which assist in resolving ethical dilemmas as well as reference tables for both legislation and cases and a full index.

The commentary was prepared and reviewed by various authors under the auspices of the Queensland Law Society’s Ethics Committee. The Society acknowledges the contributions of Rob Franklin, Bill Purcell and Nola Pearce and Professor Reid Mortensen of the Society’s Ethics Committee.
