Have your say on a proposed Australian Solicitors’ Conduct Rule

The Law Council has released a public consultation paper on a proposal for a new Australian Solicitors’ Conduct Rule (Rule 11A – Short-term legal assistance services). The new Rule seeks to clarify how existing ethical principles relating to avoiding conflicts of interest between current and former clients of a solicitor or law practice may be applied when providing short-term legal assistance services.

The paper can be found here and all comments and submissions should be emailed to by 26 November 2020.
