ANZLEC5: Sustainable Legal Ethics

ANZLEC5: Sustainable Legal Ethics

Legal ethics is developing rapidly as more jurisdictions require that the discipline be taught in Law schools and not just as a part of practical legal training. In the South east Asian and Australasian regions, we are also beginning to recognise the importance of strengthening lawyers' fundamental values in the context of corruption, human rights abuses and a warming world. Sustainable (and resilient) legal ethics are moving into the forefront.

The Australian and New Zealand Legal Ethics Colloquium is held its 5th bi-annual meeting at Monash Law's CBD chambers on the 3rd and 4th of December 2015.
