Review of the Australian Solicitors’ Conduct Rules

On 1 July 2012 the Australian Solicitors Conduct Rules 2012 (‘ASCR’) commenced in Queensland. During 2016 and 2017 the Law Council of Australia’s (‘LCA’) Professional Ethics Committee undertook a review of the ASCR. The LCA has released a consultation paper entitled ‘Review of the Australian Solicitors’ Conduct Rules’. The review paper can be found here.

The QLS Ethics Centre on behalf of the Ethics Committee and the Queensland Law Society invite members and interested parties to provide submissions with respect to the consultation paper by 31 May 2018. Submissions may be lodged at ethics@qls.com.au.
