Written by experienced practitioners, Professional Conduct has been designed to equip the reader with a solid understanding of the key ethical and professional conduct issues which underpin all types of practice at the Bar. Including full discussion of the letter and spirit of the Code of Conduct issued by the Bar Standards Board, the manual also provides full coverage of the principles of professional conduct which govern the professional relationships of the barrister with the client, the prosecution or defence counsel, the courts and other members of the legal profession. The manual also features a dedicated chapter which identifies the key principles of professional conduct applicable to the core skills of the barrister ensuring that the reader is fully able to uphold the high professional standards of the Bar across all areas of practice. Potentially problematic conduct areas are identified throughout, and practical guidance is given on the correct approach to follow in such situations should they be encountered in practice. The manual also features a number of exercises designed to encourage the reader to consider how to apply professional conduct principles to realistic scenarios. For ease of reference, the full Code of Conduct is provided as an appendix at the end of the manual. Professional Conduct is essential reading for all trainee barristers, and is a useful reference source of reference for practitioners seeking to refresh their knowledge of the rules and principles of professional conduct which govern the profession.
